Come make a difference! Experience the warmth and vibrancy of rural Dominican culture as you stay with a family in a home-stay setting and carry out needed service activities. Our July 5-15, 2017 service trip includes helping to lead an arts camp for around 100 children - your creative activity ideas are welcome!

Spanish-language immersion in a rural Dominican community that is very appreciative of visiting volunteers.

Service activities combine hands-on physical activities like construction assistance and tree planting, and social-educational activities like leading arts and learning groups for children, or workshops for adult community members.

We're happy to work with you to set up service activities based on your interests and skills to meet community needs.

Service trips include a guided day trip to Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone and a Caribbean beach.
