Humber College Students Study at Sea

A version of this article originally appeared on Enrichment Voyages.

For the sixth straight year, Mary Lendway, a professor at Humber, joined the spring Enrichment Voyage with 39 students and aseveral colleagues.

Each year, a group of curious minds from the College’s Tourism Management, Broadcast Television, Food & Nutrition Management, Culinary Management and Fitness & Health Promotion programs set sail. Before disembarking, the students sent us their reflections from the past two weeks traveling on the MV Explorer.

Tourism Management students have presented at each pre-port meeting, Broadcast Television students have been filming on board and at each port, and Fitness & Health Promotion students have been running morning exercise classes every day. While participants from each program are working within their curriculum, there are also opportunities for students to learn from each other and from their shared experiences.

In Morocco, we had the opportunity to participate as a group on a service visit to the SOS Children’s Village in Ait Ourir, just outside Marrakesh. If you saw professor Mary Lendway’s lecture on voluntourism you will know that finding a way to support the communities you visit may also offer a deeper more meaningful experience for the traveler.

SOS Children’s Village organization has been working to meet the needs and protect the rights of children around the world since 1949. This NGO helps children who are living without their biological families by providing a safe and nurturing home environment. Humber students worked in the village gardens all afternoon, weeding and planting, followed by an energetic soccer game with the children. A significant amount of funds were raised before the voyage to donate to the village, and we brought toys and supplies for the children too. Many Humber students did not want to leave. It was a meaningful experience for all participants.

Students on this journey will bring their Enrichment Voyage experiences back to share with the Humber College community, and their time on this voyage may also help them launch meaningful careers.
