JAFSP Tutoring and Service Learning in Jamaica


Short Term Study Abroad and Service Learning in Jamaica

The Jamaica Field Service Project is an ongoing service learning program accredited by the State University of New York, which is open to university students from participating universities from across the US and Canada.

The JAFSP brings school supplies, tutors, musical instruments and instruction to the schools of Jamaica five times yearly, with the support of the Rotary, Peace Corp, and the Claudia Williams HIV Education Center of Jamaica. Trips also include music-therapy and community health students who do volunteer work in the area care centers, all under the supervision of our accredited supervisors and professors.

While in Jamaica, students explore the country; the rain-forests, beaches, waterfalls, and other national landmarks. Program participants also experience the traditional music of Jamaica, with a strong emphasis on the Afro-Caribbean drumming, dancing and singing that is such a large part of life in the West Indies.

The Jamaica Field Service Project is open to university students of all majors, who may participate for university credit. Click below to read more about the JAFSP...
