  1. Would do again and again!

    The biggest lesson I learned from this experience is that my definition of poverty and someone living in a third world country are very different. When I first got there, all I could focus on was what they didn't have. But by the time I left, I realized how rich they are in community, happiness, and resourcefulness. Wow - if we could only be so lucky!

    I had an amazing time. This tor help me to see that life is not just about living. It about helping other no matter what. We live in a world we need to always see that other may need our help in many ways. By going to the DR help me to see thew world in a very different way. By helping helps. And at the end of the day. That smile on the face of other know you have did well.

  4. Absolutely Incredible

    The experience these students had in the Dominican Republic was truly life changing, not just for them, but for me as well. It renewed my energy as a teacher and made me so proud of my students and all that they accomplished.

  5. Cultural explosion

    It is a great tour for cultural immersion from the food to the hotel. You not only experience tourist things but also the real deal of what people are really like in the country.

  6. Week of life lessons

    My daughter loved every minute of her trip. She made bonds with the local children. She taught them about anti bullying and learned it is a big problem in their schools. She loved receiving a bracelet one girl gave her. She felt extremely proud of the work they did on the community building. It was a week packed with adventure, learning and working. We would define steely recommend this trip!!
