The communities of the Dominican Republic tackle with the issues of poverty every day. As an ISV volunteer in the Dominican Republic, you will have the opportunity to improve the quality of lives for the residents of these communities. ISV offers volunteer projects in the Dominican Republic with this goal; they are attempting to achieve this goal through building infrastructure and giving these residents better education programs.
If you choose to volunteer focusing on community development, you will be involved in building and renovating homes, community centers, schools, latrines, water and sewage facilities, sidewalks, and community gardens, and to deliver basic health education and English language programs. ISV's other volunteer option is to work with children and teach English, Math, Geography, Sciences and Health Education in a summer camp setting.
