SWBA is dedicated to real-world experience, becoming participant observers (Cultural Anthropology). We visit several distinct indigenous and cultural groups on field study. We also participate in 2 homestays in Panama.
Each year SWBA students get involved in projects to promote education, community and equality. We believe getting interested in the world leads to getting involved.
Students receive credit for five courses during the semester: Spoken Language/English 11 or English 12, Social Justice 12 or Social Studies 11, Leadership 11/12, Comparative Cultures 12, Intro Spanish/Span 11.

"A very awesome program! This is the best groups of students that we have ever had at ITEC. I truly wish that every group that comes to ITEC could be as wonderful to work with as SWBA. I would recommend this program to anyone!" - Joe Maher ITEC
