Here’s a fabulous opportunity from a fellow Boston teacher, Jennifer Dines, to travel to the Dominican Republic this summer to volunteer! Jennifer explains:
Are you interested in traveling to the Dominican Republic?
Do you know a college student, friend, or colleague who is hoping to improve in Spanish and cross-cultural communication?
Would you like to spend a month of your summer living and working on the shores of the Caribbean?
I had an incredible experience working with the young women serviced by the Mariposa DR Foundation, and it has proved invaluable to me in my work here in Boston. I am hoping to spend at least part of my summer volunteering and visiting my students in this program this year.
The Mariposa DR Foundation is looking for experienced teachers and/or volunteers who could lead enrichment programs. Apply soon, because the deadline is in April. This is an ongoing program, however, so even if you miss the deadline, keep abreast of other opportunities.
