In this Global PeaceMakers program, volunteers from the Dominican Republic, the US, and more will collaborate with local community members to support a Model Classroom in La Represa. Service For Peace has been working in the partner Community of Peace of La Represa since 2006. The school is in desperate need of repair, and service will include repairing the roof, bathrooms, walls, surrounding property, plumbing, and more. Volunteers will live in a house within La Represa, giving the opportunity to really enjoy the local life!
Global PeaceMakers projects bring together young adults from nations throughout the Americas and the world in an effort to offer models for intercultural cooperation through service.
The GPM is a service-learning project with a special focus on building personal leadership and peacemaking skills through service. Also woven into the schedule is time to see and experience the local culture and beautiful landscapes of the Dominican Republic--a fascinating culture that is sure to leave a mark on your heart.
Join us for a transformational experience in peacemaking, with participants from different cultures and traditions coming together as one family.
