Hola Session 2 Students!
Spring break was a blast from start to finish, and we’re so glad you chose to spend it with us! It’s so wonderful to see young students such as yourselves dedicating your spring break to helping to make a community a better place here in the DR. We know there was a lot of physical activity, but you guys were troopers, and we were all so proud of you and all the work you put in!
Here are some of our favorite memories from session 2:
-Hiking Mt. Brison. It was tough, but the views made it all worth it!
-Lunch with Dona Maxima
-Evening mentor groups. You guys were so open to discussion and striving to gain a better understanding of the local community, and we applaud you for that!
-Seeing you all work together to divide and conquer the tasks at the bottle house site
–Relaxing poolside at the lodge
-Busting out into song on the bus
-Ziplining into the lagoon!
-Working with the batey community to restore the local school
-Ice cream stop!
-Learning Merengue and Bachata from the locals
We hope you all are having an amazing year, whether you’re back at your high school or have moved on to college or another adventure. We will always cherish the experiences we shared as a group here in the DR, and we would love for you to come back and visit us some day!
-Your DR Spring Break Staff
