2018 Mar 13
Wilkes University students participated in an alternative spring break trip in the Dominican Republic, volunteering with The Guanin Center, Inc. in La Piedra, Santo Domingo. The students worked with the organization to teach the community English. The children and community leaders took English second language classes taught by Wilkes students. Students also interacted with the community members of La Piedra.
Alternative spring break offers students an opportunity to perform community service while experiencing a different culture and developing their leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills.
Crystal Cool, assistant director of diversity affairs; Erica Acosta, associate director of diversity affairs; and Tyisha Williams, assistant professor of biology accompanied the students on the trip.
