Hand in hand with the Mariposa DR Foundation, you will help empower girls in the Dominican Republic to rise out of generational poverty. Nestled on the north coast in the town of Cabarete, we volunteer along with teachers to provide educational, artistic, and athletic activities in the afternoons for girls ages 8 to 11. In the mornings, we work as a team on building and beautification projects (landscaping, painting and general maintenance) around the Mariposa Center. This service learning program is an opportunity for you to enjoy significant cross-cultural exchanges and to open up new horizons for the local community and for yourself.
