A group of 10 counselors from across the United States participated in the counseling institute in Lilongwe, Malawi, held January 24–February 10, 2014. This institute in the “warm heart of Africa” was a collaboration between Old Dominion University (ODU) and NBCC International (NBCC-I). Participating counselors had the opportunity to work with the Guidance, Counselling and Youth Development Centre for Africa on its programs, to work in primary and secondary schools, and to facilitate a conference for local counselors and students.
This institute is the fifth such service-learning project for counselors, and NBCC-I and ODU are already planning future institutes. National Certified Counselors will receive information about future opportunities as it becomes available.[Back] [Previous] [Next]
