Students Crossing Borders

Students Crossing Borders (SCB) is a network of people who travel to Kingston Jamaica where they work in some of the most impoverished communities of the city. Participants work in a variety of places - in a school and the health clinic in Riverton (a community built on Kingston’s landfill site), a home for children with HIV, an institution for children with special needs, and a home for abandoned seniors. We typically build a small house for someone in need or we repair houses in the community. Our primary focus is on early education and the development of partnerships to provide opportunities for teacher training.

This trip is open to all students, faculty, staff and alumni in Seneca.
