Trip Highlights

  • Hanover, Jamaica  is in a majour tourist area and the crime rate is low. Water is safe to drink and U.S. electrical devices work.
  • You will visit a family court, an orphanage, a pre-school, a high school sex education class and participate in planning for community change in rural Jamaica, perhaps helping to conduct a community survey.
  • We'll stay in Montego Bay our first and last nights and at Global Villa in Lucea, a guest house for Jamaicans, the other nights.
  • Sightsee at Rick's Cafe and Bloody Bay in Negril and the Hip Strip in MoBay. Options inlude a swim with the dolphins in Lucea and Bull's Bear near Global Villa (The bull is gone!).
  • Why this trip? Learning about Jamaica is important and experiencing another country close-up is very valuable.  Human needs may be the same everywhere, but organizing to meet those needs varies from country to country.
  • Get to know your fellow social work students better!
