We love The Dominican Republic for a variety of reasons! Since we're talking about a Caribbean island here, of course one of those reasons is the amazing beaches you can visit as you spend a semester volunteering. Here is our guide to the best beaches in The DR so you know you're not missing out!
With so many countries to choose from it can be hard to choose where to volunteer with ILP. No matter where you volunteer though you will LOVE your kids. Here's proof.
We love how these volunteers from the Dominican Republic decided to help out someone they really loved — Tamaris, the sweet cook!

Wondering how to get around a new country that’s your home for the next semester? Not a worry. There are tons of ways to see your city … you can even take Uber and Lyft in these ILP countries.

The Dominican Republic is home to some of the cutest kids around and you get to teach them! During your semester in the DR with International Language Programs (ILP) you will grow to love the kids you serve and you will find that they are each unique and hilarious.
