Full-Time Service-Learning Program
Santiago, dominican republic
ISA Service-Learning offers opportunities for you to make an impact in a community abroad, enhance your cultural competency, and develop key skills that you’ll use for the rest of your life.
Known as the “Heart City" of this sunny Caribbean country, Santiago is the cultural and commercial center of the fertile Cibao Valley region. Surrounded by mountains, Santiago is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, but offers a vibrant host of activities for city lovers as well. It is within easy travel proximity of many of the Dominican Republic's most sought after tourist locations, but retains its unique Dominican character.
