2011 GSE Brazil Presentation
PCC's celebration of Black History Month continued Feb. 8 with a presentation by LaTonya Evans, who is the director of the college's Student Support Services program. Evans discussed her trip to Brazil last year as part of a Group Study Exchange (GSE) program through the Rotary Foundation.

The GSE program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for businesspeople and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries. For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country's culture and institutions, observe how their vocations are practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.

In a typical four-week tour, applicants participate in five full days of vocational visits, 15 to 20 club presentations, 10 to 15 formal visits and social events, two to three days at the district conference, three to four hours per day of cultural and site tours, and three to four hours per day of free time with host families.
