Bridges to Community is committed to providing a meaningful cross-cultural service learning experience for our volunteers, and at the same time engaging in sustainable long-term community development projects that have lasting impact for some of the most impoverished people in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
What We Do
Bridges to Community engages in sustainable community development that has lasting impact for some of the most impoverished people in the Western Hemisphere by forming long-term relationships with communities and bringing volunteers to help work on meaningful projects in housing, health, education and economic development alongside community members.
Where We Work
We work in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua, countries rich in cultural traditions and natural beauty but that struggle with over 20% of the rural population in extreme poverty, and unemployment rates that exceed 50%. We partner with communities to focus on housing, health, education, and economic development.
