Jesuit Worldwide Learning: Education at the Margins

The mission of Jesuit Worldwide Learning is to “provides tertiary learning to people and communities at the very edges of our societies – be it through poverty, location, lack of opportunity, conflict or forced displacement – so that they can contribute their knowledge and voices to the global community of learners and together we will foster hope to create a more peaceful and humane world.”

This is an interesting project to consider from a Social Role Valorization and PASSING perspective. Who (factually and existentially) are the groups of vulnerable people that this project is focused upon? What are the processes of social devaluation and wounding described in the TEx Talk video? What needs are identified and discussed?

Analyze the project mission and goals in terms of:

• access to the ‘good things of life‘ (including ‘opportunities and expectancies that enable one to discover and develop one’s abilities, skills, gifts and talents’)

• the developmental model

• the role of student

• the culturally valued analogue (of higher education)

• interpersonal identification
