Group Study Tours and International Projects

Education for Employment

In addition to our international exchange programs, including our Post Certificate Program, Emerging Leaders in the America’s Program and International Field Schools, the College is currently taking part in two Education for Employment projects in the Andean Region that Global Affairs Canada and Colleges and Institutes Canada launched in the fall of 2014. The first project is with Instituto de Educacion Superior Tecnologico Publico of Rioja, Peru (in partnership with Norquest College) and the second is with the Tecnologico Agropecuario Portachuelo in the area of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. 

These projects have allowed our partnerships to focus on increasing employment opportunities for youth and women and meeting the needs of agri-businesses, government and other stakeholders, while supporting environmental sustainable practices.

Olds College collaborates with organizations such as a Better World Canada to offer opportunities for students to gain experience in international projects. Examples include short study trips to build community gardens in Kenya (2013), participate in a Bolivian Agricultural tour (2012), or enrol in a Study Tour in the Dominican Republic (2008).
