Senegal has recently been added as one of St. Stephen's spring trip destinations that our students may choose to travel to.


Their week-long stay on the World UNESCO Heritage site of the Island of Gorée exposes students to a unique service-learning experience. A full immersion in village life on the island allows students to become acquainted with the significant history of the island, and learn about customs and culture.
Special bonds are formed and relationships forged through teaching elementary students at the local primary school. Our students also learn how to fish, take cooking lessons, and are taught drumming and dance by professional artists.  As a way of thanking the island's residents for their kindness, generosity and hospitality, our students' stay usually culminates in a special performance that the entire community attends.

To learn more about this year's trip to Senegal, follow the group's activities on Facebook.
