Community College in France

The Community College in France Bootcamps allow students to spend two weeks in France during the Summer to explore current global issues, improve their transversal skills and broaden their intellectual horizon. The Bootcamps are designed to provide culturally immersive study abroad opportunities for students who have been historically underrepresented in study abroad.

"This bootcamp has been life changing for me. It has opened my mind and broken-down barriers I had put up for myself. I have learned a lot and enjoyed myself as well." Brenda Montes, Polk State College, 2019

Bootcamp Alumni

Check out what our Bootcamps alumni have to say about their experience in France!

"Merging international students together in a new environment was foundational for building unified perspectives on what human rights can and will be in our future. I learned more about the world, fundamental human rights, active citizenship and myself in just two weeks because of this program."
Jordan McMinn, Lane Community College, 2019

“I have learned so much in so few days and wish I could have stayed a month, or even five years. I think this program is an amazing experience for anyone wanting to learn about the culture of France but more importantly the scientific innovations and sustainable movements the nation is taking as a whole.”
Devin Thomas, Lone Star College, 2018

 “I am now seriously considering applying for a master’s degree in urban planning. I definitely feel that the program has made me rethink my future career plans.”
Diana Calderon, La Guardia Community College, 2017

“It was really a learning experience to see how the French work together to conserve energy, fight climate change and protect the environment. I used to want to be a mechanical engineer, but now my focus will be on designing products and developing equipment to clean up existing environmental problems.”
Dhrumil Shah, Tunxis Community College in CT, 2017
