Service Learning in the Dominican Republic

June 1, 2013

Ten BW students and an advisor spent late May into June in the Dominican Republic, teaching at an English immersion camp and painting a learning center.

In addition to their service, the BW volunteers had the opportunity to experience Dominican cuisine and culture, including a trip to a market on the Haitian border and dance lessons in merengue and bachata. They also gained a deeper understanding of educational inequalities, Dominican-Haitian relations and themselves!
