The “bottle building” is a Dominican Republic classic, and one of our most long-standing service projects. Students and community members kill two birds with one stone as they use plastic bottles, many collected from roadsides and landfills, to construct a community building.
Get your game face on! Students prepare for a day at the construction site.
Global Health Initiative incorporates time with medical brigades to give students a taste of life in a public health career.
Working with the community and learning from local pros is what service-learning is all about! Students get a lesson from a local medical health professional in the field.
Aaaah, the delicate art of coconut opening. A lesson might be in order!
Students learn a little more about the Dominican Republic’s colonial history through a city tour.
