International Service Learning at Lincoln


7th grade students have the opportunity to participate in a service learning trip to a foreign country. In past years, we have visited Nicaragua and Costa Rica. This year we are considering Ecuador or Costa Rica.  While traveling, students participate in a variety of intercultural experiences, including service projects.  

Who goes on the trip?

Students apply to participate during the spring semester of their 6th grade year.  The application process asks students to reflect on their leadership experience and potential, their dedication to their school and community, and their ability to contribute to a positive travel experience for the group.  The applications are evaluated and a group is selected. This group is placed in a specific Advisory class starting in 7th grade. There are a handful of required meetings, required curriculum, and post-trip responsibilities that each participant must agree to complete.

How can my student participate?

Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2020 trip. If you are the parent of a current 6th grade student click here  for details about this year’s trip  and here  for a link to the online application. Specific questions can be directed to any one of our International Travel Team:
