Feedback from 2014 Participants

“Absolutely life changing.”

“I learned so much about Punta Cana and the Dominican Republic, and got to have so many incredible experiences with amazing people. None of us ever wanted to leave.”

“It was absolutely amazing… I learned so much that could only be taught outside of the classroom, hands on.”

“Nothing will ever be able to prepare you for the cultural experience you are surrounded with on this trip. The people you meet will honestly change your life and views.”
