       Do you want to make a huge difference in someone’s life and have a lasting impact on a impoverished community? Come volunteer as a camp counselor for the Change My Stars English Immersion Camp in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic!

Dates:  1-6 weeks (2 week minimum recommended) between June 21 and August 2, 2014

Costs:  (Covers stay, meals, daily transportation, and a program fee. Airfare, transportation to and from airport, and recreational transportation not included.)

What Volunteers Will Do:  Each weekday morning volunteers will teach English immersion classes to campers, ages 5 to 14, for about four hours in the center of town.  Each afternoon, approximately two hours will be dedicated to various projects throughout the Haitian community (this could include anything from setting up a family Bingo Night to installing a water barrel based on the volunteers’ interests).  Weekends will be reserved for visiting other Project Esperanza sites, going to the beach, experiencing 27 Waterfalls, and other recreational activities.

Where Volunteers Will Stay:  Volunteers will stay in our volunteer house in the community of Munoz. There are bunk beds, shared space, meals cooked three times a day at the house, within walking distance to the beach.

  1. The beach is not actually two blocks from the camp. It’s a taxi ride away, approx. 15-20 minutes.
