2021 ISLC

As we continue to closely monitor the pandemic as well as international travel, Operation Smile keeps the safety of our student leaders as its main priority. Unfortunately, we will not be able to host ISLC 2021 in Peru.

However, we are continuing to investigate options to bring together our student leaders in a safe and engaging environment this July 12-18. Staff is currently researching U.S.-based locations, with the capability of a hybrid model for those who wish to join virtually (both U.S. and international).

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to make ISLC 2021 both a fun and safe conference. Once a new conference site is confirmed, this page will be updated. Following that, applications will be launched for new participants.

If you have any questions, please email islc@operationsmile.org.
