DR BORDERS 2019 MAY 6-18, 2019 APPROX. COST: $1600-1800 PER STUDENT DEADLINE TO APPLY: February 1, 2019
Next May, New England InterVarsity is partnering with ADEE (Asociacion Dominicana Estudiantes Evangelicos) for a two week service learning Global Program called Borders. Partnership with IFES A strong partnership has formed over the past 10 years with ADEE and the Hispaniola Global Issues Internship and we hope to expand our relationship by bringing more NE students to help the movement grow.
The goal of the trip is to raise the awareness of students in thinking about racial reconciliation and the gospel and the issues surrounding immigration in the Hispaniola context. (Dominican and Haitian Border issues). We hope our students will grow in being ambassadors of peace in a growing climate of division.
We will also hope to spend some time on campus in doing proxe stations and talking with the many open students on campus
The desire of ADEE is to reach outlying campuses. The groups, if any, are totally student, alumni, faculty or volunteer run. Let’s help them reach new campuses or further onto the University of Santa Domingo which has over 100,000 current students!!
Ministry opportunities: We are working to organize most of the time to be on the Haitian/ DR border to serve in a local work with the needs of the local community. Also, the team will then do some campus outreach. We will build a team of US, Haitian and Dominican students.
Other benefits: 1. Building lasting friendships 2. Cross-cultural acuity training
