From Tewksbury to Tanzania for Lasell’s Walsh
NEWTON -- Hailee Walsh of Tewksbury was among a group of 15 Lasell College students who participated in a service-learning trip to Tanzania over the summer.
They worked with faculty and peers to teach reading, comprehension, and conversational English to Tanzanian students in grades 1-7. In turn, the group took courses in Swahili and held several workshops for the local population. In preparation for the 2-week trip, Lasell students participated in a semester-long course last spring. Students refined their skills as teachers, mentors and leaders, and prepared for the cultural aspects of the trip.
