Service Learning in Guatemala
The Department of Occupational Therapy is again offering an international academic service learning option for occupational therapy majors in Summer 2016 (May 28 - June 5).
Occupational therapy majors are currently required to complete 30 hours of service learning. Traditionally, this has been accomplished in the greater Cincinnati area where students have worked with and learned from persons who sustained traumatic brain injuries, are mentally ill, developmentally disabled, or local elementary school children.
Now, they have yet another option - to work with and learn from children who live in homes for children in Guatemala. Faculty, practitioners, and colleagues of the Department of Occupational Therapy accompany them. This is an exciting opportunity and privilege for all. Please freely continue to visit this website to learn more.
The 2015 trip was again a huge success! ... On a post-trip survey, all 29 of the participants rated the overall trip very good or excellent. A strong majority reported they would go again and all reported they would recommend the trip to others.
