Jamaica Experience Summer 2014
Offered May 27–June 4 2014, the Jamaica Experience allows 10 students to travel to Mandeville, Jamaica to live, work, study and play at St. John Bosco Boys’ Home. Bosco is residence, school and skill-training center to approximately 160 boys between the ages of 5-18.
During our time in Jamaica students will have the opportunity to interact with the boys in their school and work environment; learn about Jamaican culture, customs and practices; and better understand Bosco’s response and sense of responsibility to court-ordered and displaced boys.
This is a technology-free experience; travellers may not bring phones, iPods or iPads.
The trip costs $1,100* and includes:
- Ground transportation in Jamaica
- Structured group excursion
