Closed - Dominican Republic Impact Cruise



Purpose:
We will partner with Fathom to cruise to the Dominican Republic to assist poor communities near Puerto Plata to improve their lives and to build more stable communities and families.

Project Dates: 03/26/2017 to 04/02/2017

Country: Dominican Republic

Location: Puerto Plata

Cost: $500.71 Plus Air

Level of Physical Challenge:



Special Requirements/Qualifications/Skills Needed:

Anyone over 8 can join us on this project - and everyone should!

Project Background:

Volunteer Voyages is partnering with Fathom Cruises for this very unique opportunity. We will join them in March, sailing from Miami, Florida, spending a day and a half cruising to the Dominican Republic. Along the way we will learn about the Island and its people and more about our plans ashore. Once there we will join the ground team, assisting with tasks they have designed for us and learning about the Dominican way of life. Each night we will return to our cabins to sleep and enjoy the many activities the ship has to offer - after we have a chance to explore Puerto Plata, of course. Check the Additional Information section (below) for more details of what you can expect.

Deadlines:

Please check your calendar and book soon because the low-priced cabins are filling up fast.  We can still book you but the prices will be going up.

Additional Information:

Fathom impact activities in the Dominican Republic include a wide range of projects focused on economic development, education and the environment. During your three days on the island, depending on your individual passions and skills, you will have the opportunity to get involved in the projects you feel the most strongly about. You will work directly alongside community members and our partner organizations, doing what they do, helping where they need you, and almost certainly making some new friends along the way.
You will also discover that impact travel is far more than a seven-day experience. On the return trip, we will help you look at ways you can stay involved by bringing your knowledge, inspiration, and insight back to your own community, keeping your impact travel experience alive long after your seven-day journey is over.
