International Service-Learning (Shoulder-to-Shoulder)

International service-learning at Lasell College involves credit-bearing coursework coupled with a one to two week community service field experience, working "shoulder-to-shoulder" with community members in another country. Lasell has offered programs in Brazil, Mexico, Nicaragua, and most recently, in Antigua, Ecuador, Belize, Uganda, and Vietnam. For the experience in Antigua, students spend time supporting learners with special needs through a one-week pre-practicum experience in three of Antigua’s primary schools. This program is offered during the winter break in partnership with Perkins School for the Blind and was developed in conjunction with the Officer for Special Education for Antigua’s Ministry of Education. In Ecuador, students participate in Environmental Service Learning. Students have explored the rich culture of Ecuador while helping to protect the country's biologically diverse environment. The January trip entails a 10-day on-the-ground study of and service related to the environment in Ecuador. The Belize experience has focused on ecotourism. Students study a holistic approach to planning and tourism development, reviewing standard industry practices and processes. In May, students traveled to Belize to view, research, and participate in a newly developing ecotourism system. The May program in Uganda has offered students the opportunity to work with rural schoolchildren to improve their performance on national tests, as well as to present relevant workshops to the local community. Lasell's partnership in eastern Uganda with the Arlington Academy of Hope has focused on education, public health, and small business development. Students traveling to Vietnam study the history and culture of Vietnam in addition to learning about economics and business development in a developing country. The field experience in January includes working with the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, Project RENEW, and the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi, in cooperation with the Indochina Arts Partnership in Wellesley, Mass.
