Completely! I learned how to live with a family that was not my own without hot water and I learned how to teach children how to read in Spanish. Not to mention I learned how to speak the language! - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
My experience was very worthwhile. I met new people and had experiences that I could never imitate in a classroom at my home university. I pushed myself to overcome the challenge of language barriers and became more confident in myself and my knowledge of the Dominican culture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a strong sense of my own strengths and weaknesses, and came back more aware of how I want to use my education; it was worthwhile. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
It was extremely worthwhile. I am going to continue my studies in Community Development, with a focus on advocating for Latinos in the United States and/or Hispanic countries abroad. Dominicans gave me a new perspective on life and how to truly enjoy it. - Clark University View Entire Review

About

Ever seen a fair-trade label on an item you’ve purchased? That means the item supports small producers in underdeveloped countries like the Dominican Republic, the second-poorest country in the Caribbean. Examine some of the great challenges the Dominican people face, and actively work to improve their lives on CIEE’s Service-Learning program. Through coursework, fieldwork, internships, cultural activities, and excursions, you’ll also improve your Spanish skills, and gain new abilities in research methodology, grant writing, critical analysis, and public speaking.

Study abroad in Santiago and you'll:
- Enjoy an internship in a service site that corresponds to your academic interests
- Take part in an experiential, collaborative learning model through grassroots and community- based engagement and learning
- Engage yourself in promoting community action through applied field research and a capstone project
- Build a portfolio of practical and professional skills including research methodology, grant writing, critical analysis, and public speaking
- Be part of an ongoing and co-curricular rural partnership in organic farming and environmental justice
- Visit sites of cultural, economic, and social importance, including the free trade zone, the Dajabón bi-national market on the Haitian border, Boca de Nigua, and Engombe (historic ruins of slave-run sugar mills)
