In May 2019, 4 adults and 15 students embarked on an 8 day full service learning trip to the Dominican Republic. On our adventure, we spent our week working with students at a local school through the organization called Dream Project. Although there was a language barrier, out students were able to deeply connect with the students they met. We were also able to help improve their school by painting their basketball court. During our trip, we were able to experience the food, culture, and for some of our students, experience their first time in a warm Atlantic Ocean! Towards the end of our service trip we were able to take a surf lesson and visit some of the beautiful mangroves that line the shores of the Dominican Republic. If you are interested in exploring the world, while making a difference in someone else's life, please check out our latest service learning trip.
