How You Will Spend Your Day
With Us:

Whether you are by yourself or with a group, Dove Youth Development would love to have you!  Here is what a day with us looks like:


  • Pick up at any local hotel or accommodation in Puerto Plata by our staff.

  • You will help work with our kids on their daily lessons, led by teachers. The students usually work on English to

go with the monthly theme to foster self-esteem, cooperation, respect, responsibility, goal setting, and leadership skills.
  • A visit to the local barrio (neighborhood) to immerse yourself in the Dominican culture and see where our children live.

  • In the afternoon, you will work with our afternoon children's classes and programs.
