8 days
Northern Coast Region - Estimated 20 Service Hours
Meaningful. Sustainable. Unforgettable
As you travel across the Dominican Republic, take a cultural journey into the local communities of the northern coast. While you’re immersed in the local heritage, you’ll gain insight into the issues impacting local children today. Working together with area non-profits and community members, you’ll help build sustainable solutions to the educational, social, and economic challenges they face.
Your Service Project Themes
We work with local non-profits to better understand the needs of each community and then focus projects on those issues. Themes include: 
  • Access to Education
  • Youth Development
  • Generational Poverty
 
DAY 1: ARRIVE IN SANTIAGO
Meet your Field Director at the airport. After you arrive at your accommodations, settle in and meet your group for the country orientation and safety overview.

DAYS 2-6: SERVICE PROJECT — NORTHERN COAST REGION
As communities evolve so do their needs. That’s why we work closely with non-profits to better understand the local challenges. Since projects are determined closer to your actual tour date, here’s a glimpse at what a typical day might look like. 
  • In the morning, begin your service project with children in a nearby village.
  • Spend the afternoon immersed in cultural activities.
  • In the evening, reflect, discuss events as a group, and draw connections between the day’s work and relevant global issues.
 
DAY 7: MANGROVE TOUR OR HIKE
  • Explore a mangrove forest by boat with your local tour guide or take a guided hike on the beautiful North Coast. Later, transfer to Santiago.
 
DAY 8: DEPART FOR HOME
