I am Maria, the PC (program coordinator) who will guide you through this amazing experience in the Northern region of Dominican Republic. I am very passionate about social justice and the beauty of service-learning. I believe in the potential of the local communities to improve themselves, but I also love to have fun in the process, meet new people, and dance! I love to know new places and people. I am really looking forward to meeting all of you and sharing this awesome trip we have prepared for you so you can learn and enjoy the magic of the Dominican culture. I am pretty sure you will have fun and learn a lot. And you will come back to your homes having been changed in the best way possible. So be prepared for these 16 days of mind-blowing activities, meeting new people, laughing, crying, helping, growing, and enjoying!
