ISLP Belize 2011

The UofL International Service Learning team for 2011 is ready for departure on March 11.

The interdisciplinary service learning teams include students and faculty from Dentistry, Communication, Justice Administration, and Nursing. We will be in Belize for one very full week. The trip includes some cultural and fun time at the Mayan Ruins called Xunantanich and snorkeling on the barrier reef. The majority of our time will be spent working in the villages of Red Bank, Independence, and Georgetown. The villages are located in the Stann Creek district which in the southern portion of Belize.

The team has many projects planned:
* Dental Clinic
* Workshops on Bullying and Conflict Resolution
* Teaching and Work in Schools
* Home visits with parents about health care

We will post information and photos each day of our trip. Please send notes and comments back to the team. This will be our way to stay in touch with our friends and family while we are on the trip.

Michael Mardis
Dean of Students
