CPCC Service-Learning is excited to announce that it is offering a unique opportunity for students to travel abroad for a transformative hands-on learning experience. During spring break, March 8-14, 2015, six students will have the opportunity to travel to Kingston, Jamaica to complete service projects at the local YMCA – an organization that seeks to promote the development of young people in spirit, mind and body. Kingston, Jamaica – the capital and largest city of Jamaica – is located on the south eastern coast of the island and is considered the island’s cultural and economic heart.
This international service-learning trip is an educational and enriching experience that combines individualistic growth with civic-mindedness. Students will be exposed to and interact with people of different ages, backgrounds and educational levels. Not only will students learn about the culture, but they will also experience it as they work alongside the locals and engage in meaningful dialogue.

Application Deadline: Monday, December 8, 2014!
