All Service Learning Trips

Every SLT is available for any volunteer to join, regardless of campus affiliation, unless they are listed as “Locked” or have reached their maximum capacity as listed below. 

Part of a MEDLIFE Chapter? If you see your University or Institution's name listed on a posted SLT week, it means the Chapter from your campus will be attending that SLT. Please note, the title does not mean MEDLIFE is directly working with the Administration of said University or Institution but is instead affiliated with a student-led Chapter on the stated campus.

If you wish to attend a “Locked” SLT or put yourself on the waiting list for an SLT that has reached maximum capacity, please email [email protected] to inquire about availability.

Donations/Refunds: In order to sustain our year-round work, every MEDLIFE volunteer is required to meet a donation goal to participate in their Service Learning Trip. These donations are non-refundable. If for any reason you are unable to meet your donation goal before the trip begins, you can instead join a trip later in the year so that you have more time to fundraise. Please make sure to review our cancellation policy in detail when registering for your trip.

If registration does not meet the minimum number of required volunteers by the trip deadline, the Service Learning Trip will be canceled and the MEDLIFE team will work with volunteers to find a new trip that works with their schedule. If for any reason there are no other trips that work for the volunteer, said volunteer may choose to allocate their funds raised to a different volunteer. If this option also does not suit the volunteer, all donations will be used to support the mission of MEDLIFE.

Volunteers should wait to purchase airfare until the trip is confirmed by MEDLIFE HQ via email. If cancellation occurs, MEDLIFE will not be held accountable for flights purchased prior to official trip confirmation. For more information, please email: [email protected]

Trip Maximums: Each partner site has a maximum number of registrants, determined by resources available in the location. Maximum capacities are as follows:

Lima - 200 | Cusco - 160 | Riobamba - 120 | Tena - 110 | Esmeraldas - 80 | Kilimanjaro - 40 | Managua - 100

These maximums are subject to change at the discretion of MEDLIFE if staff, lodging, and materials permit.
