International Service Learning Program – Southern Dominican Republic

The Richard A. Henson Honors Program and the Office of University Engagement & Lifelong Learning at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore are collaborating to offer students an exceptional International Service Learning experience during the winter 2018 session.

For about 20 UMES students, it will be the experience of a lifetime. In the Dominican Republic, they'll experience hands-on, life-changing involvement on issues like:

  1. Expanding professional development through research service projects; and
  2. Advancing awareness and appreciation for global perspectives and multicultural diversity.

Meaningful. Sustainable. Unforgettable!

In this environmentally-charged project, students will work closely with locals who are committed to preserving the environment and promoting responsible tourism. Students will also work with Jarabacoa's National Environmental School to help raise awareness through composting, community gardening and tutoring.

The group will travel to rural communities where poverty poses challenges to economic development, healthcare and access to education. Students and community members will build sustainable solutions to those challenges.

Areas of Study include:

1. Sustainable Agriculture

2. Ecotourism Department

3. Urban Migration

We're very grateful for your support! Thank you for helping to send HAWKS on this valuable learning experience!
