We are excited to offer opportunities for partnership to international visitors who want to be of service to the youth and families of the Dominican Republic.

We have facilities to accommodate up to 22 guests, with an independent kitchen and outdoor patios for group events. We also have a church, basketball court, and baseball fields that allow for hours of community interaction.

A public school across the street was quite literally named after our institution and for decades has offered Good Samaritan Inc volunteers direct accesss to public school classrooms. 

With extensive pre-trip education and planning, we encourage students to think critically about their trip experiences and how they fit into the greater picture of international sustainable development.

Mentorship Opportunities for Volunteers

It is the heartfelt contributions of committed individuals that allow international organizations to go beyond providing a service to actually making a difference in world affairs.

The success of The Good Samaritan Inc in attracting international volunteers and cultivating lifelong leaders is truly exceptional and offers a fruitful foundation for folks looking to participate in short-term experiences that yield long-term results.

We have a network of US-based volunteers who actively travel to The Good Samaritan Inc and contribute to its programs, including:

  • Pepperdine UniversityDoctoral Students

  • Stanford University Alumni, Yale University Alumni, University of Virginia Alumni

  • Fulbright Scholars
