Volunteers need for the Summer Camp is currently for its 4 weeks. The summer camp was developed for children ages 1 to 5 years old, who are critically in need of academic help, with many being one or more grade levels behind in school. Volunteers work side by side with Dominican staff in a group effort that crosses language and cultural barriers to promote the exchange of ideas, strategies and methods in teaching and activities.

Help us keep our children on the road to a brighter future as you teach them English basics - and perhaps inspire them to keep learning.
