Journey to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic for cultural exchange, education abroad, and service learning.
Meaningful cultural exchange inspires positive change for hosts and visitors alike, particularly when it involves a shared investments of time and talent. .
Cultural Connections is our service learning program that connects volunteers with Nicaraguan and Dominican communities working to alleviate poverty where they live.
Comunidad Connect began by listening to local residents and leaders, public institutions and the private sector to identify development priorities.
Engaging groups of students and faculty from North American universities via short-term trips, research, grants, and projects is central to our community development model.
“We went to study a new design of the bio-sand filter, but we left with much more than just our data. New friendships, new experiences, and new perspectives accompanied us home.” –Tessa, University of Virginia
