This paper discusses a four-year collaborative project between Brazil and the United States. Over thirty undergraduate students were exchanged between four institutions to participate in service-learning projects in schools. Teachers and undergraduate students partnered for a full semester and connected schools in both countries in many curricular areas and age groups including language, ecology, mathematics, and discussions about race and politics. Reflections on the four years of the program are discussed along with implications for the fields of education and technology.
