About This Alternative Spring Break Trip

Social Work In Jamaica

During this alternative spring break trip, students need not be already enrolled in Dr. Gibson’s Traumatology course. Any graduate students and undergraduate seniors from all majors are welcome to apply. You will have the option to collaborate with your own professors or advisor to connect a special project from your existing Spring 2019 courses to the Jamaica service program. Students who simply want to spend their spring break making a difference but don’t want to tie their service learning to a special project are welcome to attend the trip as well.

Note that certain journals, reflections, or other assignments may still be required of students who are not receiving a grade or academic credit for their participation.
