AYUDA 2019 Summer Program
Multiple Locations, Dominican Republic: Together, AYUDA's partner organization Aprendiendo a Vivir (AAV) and AYUDA have worked to design a program to take the educational and empowerment experience of camp to other provinces. This program is aimed at those who want to combine diabetes outreach with a love of travel and exploration. Come "on the road" with AYUDA and AAV and get to know the Dominican Republic while making a difference in the diabetes community. Volunteers will travel with local Dominican youth leaders, representatives of AAV, and AYUDA staff members to the following communities to run day-long educational outreach and local capacity-building programs. Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with people living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and help provide them with the tools that motivate them to live happier, healthier lives with the condition.
