Dominican Republic Service Immersion

Each April break, students may participate in an international service immersion trip to the Dominican Republic, a developing country that shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, the poorest country in the world. Participants witness and serve some of the most extreme poverty existing on this planet, serving both Haitians and Dominicans in various ministries.

As part of Saint Joseph Prep’s emphasis on Christian service, social justice and global awareness, this international service opportunity is regarded as a privilege for our students who have already demonstrated an exemplary life of service and compassion for others. It is considered a year-long committment, in order to fulfill all aspects of involvement, from planning and preparing to fund-raising and serving, and finally, testifying to the greater community about this experience. The entire trip is funded by donations, and anyone can contribute to the cause.

The faculty leaders for this trip are Mr. ShinerMs. Piendak and Mr. Hernandez. For more information, feel free to contact them. Download an application, if you are interested in learning what it takes to apply for this experience.
