Hola Session 3 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 3:
-Hiking Mt. Brison. It was tough, but the views made it all worth it!
-Lunch with Dona Maxima
-Ben’s epic guitar sessions
-Evening leadership lectures and discussions. You guys were so open to discussion and strived 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
-Pool parties at the lodge
-Ziplining into the lagoon and swimming in the cenotes
-Dance parties on the bus
-Working with the batey community to restore the local school
-Snorkeling and boat rides in Sosua
-Stopping for ice cream to beat the heat and satisfy our collective group sweet tooth
-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
