South America Immersion


EREA is committed to developing positive and mutually beneficial relationships with communities in Indigenous Australia and the Majority World through immersion and partnership programs. The Catholic call to global solidarity and the quest for justice and peace for all is at the heart of these experiences. Immersions and partnerships provide excellent opportunities for school communities to develop relationships of solidarity across borders; learn about global justice issues; Inspire and nurture individual and communal faith journeys; join together with others as part of a common humanity; and act together for justice and peace in our world.

The South American experience, which will encompass Peru, Argentina and Uruguay, will provide participants with the opportunity to immerse in the work of the Church and the Christian Brothers and show solidarity with our Edmund Rice schools in these countries. It will also allow participants to explore the richness of the Latin American cultures, spirituality and landscapes. You are invited to consider participating in this formational and professionally enriching leadership development program.
