International Service Learning


When: December 15th-23rd
Where: Panama
What: International Service Learning (ISL) is a volunteering organization that enlists medical and educational volunteer teams for the provision of services to under-served populations in Central and  South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Africa.  According to the schedule on their site (, a 9-day program is planned that will be volunteering with pedriatic dentistry, pre-dental, and dental needs in Panama.
    The cost per person is $1670 (not including flight to/from).  According to the website, an application is submitted along with $285 (an $85 non-refundable application fee and $200 non-refundable fee towards the trip). Finanical aid is avaliable and if half the trip is paid for before Aug. 31st, a 10% discount is offered to volunteers.
    If enough people are interested, Robert and I will go speak to Club Alliance about fundraising opportunities at the school to help with the cost of the trip.
   Please check out the link if you're are truly interested in this once in a lifetime opportunity; I believe the money will be nothing compared to the experience you gain!
