This environmentally focused service experience is a collaboration with the Brigada Verde (Green Brigade), a Peace Corps Initiative devoted to environmentally responsible tourism in the Dominican Republic. Based at the Escuela Nacional Forestal in Jarabacoa, students will spend a week working with the Brigadistas on engaging projects and local initiatives that promote environmental awareness across the country.
Students will complete 35 service hours through EF's service learning opportunities, which are proudly recognized by the President's Volunteer Service Award for meeting standards in service excellence. Your particular service learning projects are determined by the needs of the community at the time of your visit. Students will have the opportunity to participate in environmental projects such ecotourism, natural resource conservation and reforestation, as well as community development projects like gardening and light construction. Students will also enjoy a whitewater rafting excursion, hiking to a waterfall, a visit to a manatee park, and participating in fun activites with local residents!
