VISIONS offers teenagers opportunities for ambitious service work and cross-cultural immersion in the United States and abroad. We work with and for intercultural communities that lack financial and other development resources. Through service, authentic experience, and active exploration, we encourage new perspectives and dynamic learning.
The Dominican Republic (DR) program has been one of VISIONS longest-running summer community service partnerships. Teen volunteers will immediately feel like family with the neighbors that we have been working with for more than 25 years. The acclaimed VISIONS DR service projects include building schools, homes, and clinics, and helping to run a summer camp. Off hours are infused with the lively Caribbean culture, and time is spent socializing, dancing, playing and watching baseball. Program participants also take excursions to the Zona Colonial, beaches, and Dominican Alps.
