About

Spend five weeks in the Dominican Republic teaching children arts & crafts, sports, music, dance and other summer camp activities. Learn more at www.dominicandream.org. The DREAM Project is looking for volunteers for its 5-week summer camp program running from July 1-Aug 3, 2018. The camp was developed for children ages 8 to 14 who are critically in need of academic help, with many being one or more 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. Cost: $1,950 per volunteer covers training, airport pickup and drop off, accommodations (with a small kitchen), 3 meals a day on weekdays, drinking water, oversight and program costs for the full 5 weeks. The fee is waived for certified, experienced teachers. Volunteers must have intermediate Spanish skills.

Apply at http://dominicandream.org/volunteer/summercamp by April 30, 2018.
