Students in the Dominican Republic Service Learning Course began their year-long journey of studying geography, language, music, and the environment of the island of Hispaniola. Using Google Earth, students analyzed images of Haiti and the Dominican Republic noticing environmental differences between the two countries. Students have also been learning about fundraising and how best to offset the cost of their trip through individual and group events. This course encouraged students to develop leadership skills and build content knowledge of the region while also earning 20 hours of service by working with students in a local school and community in the Dominican Republic. This type of course hopes to help AIM students develop a better sense of themselves, what it means to do service and begin to develop their own community translation project within the AIM community. This project will allow them to become change agents at AIM and within their local communities.
