Dominican Republic participants work with their local communities to develop a sports league and then travel to tournaments around the region. Our local partner agency, Plan Dominican Republic, also supports participants' work on a variety of community-specific development projects. This country is a hub of local youth involvement in AMIGOS and most volunteer partnerships include students from the U.S. and the Dominican Republic. Participants enjoy the richness of this Caribbean island culture and the energy and enthusiasm of local children and community members.
