In one summer, you could make all the difference...

“You can be anything you want to be.” This is a familiar phrase we hear so often spoken to children in North America, followed with advice to “study” and “work hard.” In countries such as the Dominican Republic, however, it is not that easy. In most cases, it doesn't matter how hard a person studies or works, the opportunities simply aren’t there to allow for this kind of dreaming. For decades, Outreach360 volunteers have addressed this issue by hosting creative and empowering summer programs. Our Dare to Dream Summer Program is rooted in this belief that all children have a right to dream with hope.

Dare to
With Us
Here is what you need to know.
When is it?

May 16th - August 8th

Join us for anywhere from 1 to all 12 weeks by yourself, with your family, with your school, or as an Outreach360 Intern!

Where is it?

Monte Cristi, the Dominican Republic

We work in the sleepy coastal town of Monte Cristi in the Dominican Republic. You will stay at one of our locations and teach at our Learning Centers in the community. 

How much does it cost?

It depends on the length of your stay.

Outreach360 volunteers commit to raising a minimum program donation to participate in our programs. Learn more about our costs and what it includes. 

Will I be able to teach?


There is a place for you to make a difference at Outreach360, regardless of age, experience, or education. Depending on when you join us, you could be working with students ranging from pre-school to 11th grade. Our focus areas for this summer include  English, Spanish Literacy, Math, and Science & Health. Are you passionate about one of these areas? Great! If not, our English program is the most unique resource we can provide these children. If you speak English and are passionate about making a change, you will be an important addition to our community.


"I felt very lucky to be a part of the Dare to Dream program. It was fantastic to hear the children making plans for their future. Half the battle of overcoming any obstacle and achieving any dream is believing that you can. And for these children to become the engineers, doctors, and scientists they dream about, they will have to overcome some pretty intense social, cultural, and economic obstacles. The hope and optimism that the Dare to Dream program is allowing these children to experience is perfect."
