At IES Abroad, we take the idea of community very seriously. After all, we encourage our students to dive into their communities abroad in order to immerse themselves in their local culture. This sense of global community is part of what inspired a renewed commitment to, well, the globe.
Our Global Good Commitment is multifaceted, but centers around bringing the entire IES Abroad family together as agents of change. And on October 19, 2021 we came together for the inaugural CommunitIES Day of Service, where we took time out of the work day to give back.
We had an incredible day, with more than 50 IES Abroad staff members from around the world volunteering in some capacity. Whether it was an individual endeavor, or a group effort, the sense of teamwork and togetherness was incredibly strong! Check out a few highlights below.
