The Service Learning Program (SLP) provides short-term volunteers the opportunity to live, work and experience life in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica, Hagley Gap. Qualified volunteers work in either health or education, providing short-term services such as public health education, tutoring, or even one-time special events/projects such as health fairs or computer lab maintenance. In addition to serving, volunteers learn about the local community while they live with host families, eat authentic meals and meet the area shop keepers, farms and families. This symbiotic relationship allows volunteers the opportunity to “get as much as they give.” Complete the SLP Application at least 45 days prior to desired volunteer dates. It is unpaid.
Qualification: Volunteers with interest and/or experience in the areas of health, education, administration or construction and are at least 18-years of age.
