BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Want to give back and learn more about the Dominican culture in Puerto Plata? We have the opportunity for you! Visit Dove Missions Youth Development Center. A trip serving with DOVE makes a difference in the lives of children, while providing the opportunity to truly embrace and understand a new culture. The mission has always remained the same–to provide opportunity and hope to at-risk children.
$45 tax deductible donation to Dove Missions
To reserve your spot, please email Anna at email@example.com and make sure to mention the Memorial Day Getaway. You will get an email with instructions on how to proceed.
As a volunteer, you will experience the culture in a safe, positive environment while learning about the area and all that Puerto Plata has to offer. Every hug and smile from our children and their families will illustrate the Dominican happiness! The children benefit by having people help improve their English skills while feeling the love you bring by volunteering. Having mentors who care is important for every child.
Dove Missions would love to have you! You will be picked up at the Tropical Hotel by driver Juan and Operations and Youth Center Director Martina in our van at 9 am. You will begin with a tour of the barrios where our kids and their families live so you can meet people and learn more about the culture. Next, they will bring you to the Youth Development Center where you will help with breakfast and work with kids on their daily lesson, lead by our teacher Teresa.
The students usually work on English to go with the weekly theme to foster self-esteem, cooperation, respect, responsibility, goal setting and leadership skills. Next, you will help with an activity to go with the subject. This can consist of jewelry making, performing arts, health and wellness, photography or a craft. You will end the morning playing on the playground, jumping rope, playing basketball or playing on the swings. You will give hugs, good byes and then head back to the resort at Noon.
For our field experience, we ask for a $45 tax deductible donation to Dove Missions. To learn more about the center, please visit dovemissions.org or call Anna at 1-304-376-5164. Space is limited to 15 forFriday and 15 for Saturday during this event so make sure not to miss the opportunity. To reserve your spot, please email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure to mention the Memorial Day Getaway. You will get an email with instructions on how to proceed. We hope to see you in May!
