Volunteer Openings in Dominican Republic

View all
There are currently no Peace Corps Volunteer openings in Dominican Republic.

Peace Corps Volunteers "serve", not "help". "Help" denotes a paternalistic idea that we know what is best. Peace Corps Volunteers work with community partners to determine what should be done and how. Without their help, Volunteers cannot accomplish anything.
