Community Development Volunteer Program

trabajo comunitario en republica dominicana

Program aimed at families, children and young people from low-income communities

As an organization we know that one way to help is to run a community development volunteer program by supporting vulnerable communities.  So we are always looking for greater educational and economic growth for these communities.  

On the other hand, as a volunteer you can work on issues of women’s empowerment, sex education, domestic violence prevention and youth work at risk.  Providing them with the skills they need to cope with the changes that are taking place.

 

ACTIVITIES TO BE CARRIED OUT

With the programmed activities we not only transmit and help these communities, but also help us more and more to understand and see the concerns and needs of these communities.  In this way we can contribute to and focus our efforts on these specific needs.  Some of the activities carried out in the community development volunteer programme are:

  • Conducting and participating in educational and empowerment workshops.
  • Visits to the homes of families in the communities where we work.
  • Working with children and young people who need your skills and knowledge.
  • Support in community building activities in direct contact with community members in low-income neighbourhoods.

 

With regard to the work done with the social development project leader and the direct work with community members, advanced knowledge of Spanish is required.  Likewise, for the other activities to be developed in the volunteer program in community development, it is not required that you be an expert in the field, only that you are an empathetic, loving and willing to help person is enough.
