What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
In Santiago, Dominican Republic you will have the opportunity to serve in one of the following ministries: Agriculture, Appropriate Technology, Education, Health Care, Sports, Women’s Social Work, or Physical Therapy.
Our style is relational and is therefore centered around our long-standing presence within the communities where we work. This may be challenging for people who expect to see immediate "results" in evangelism and project completion. As a result, however, we see outreach participants and the poor transformed into the likeness of Christ and discover their true calling.
Our Santiago base is just a few minutes from the Santiago International Airport. You’ll serve at sites located in some of the poorest communities in the country. The newly renovated base is the perfect place to relax after a day working at your site. Your excursion is a beautiful and relaxing day at the beach.
For 25 years, we’ve sent over 25,000 students to serve alongside our full-time missionaries in hard-to-reach communities. Those students have helped transform thousands of lives for the better. And so can you.
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
Students International has had full-time staff working alongside the local people of Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic since the year 2000 and are connected with local churches.

- The most common objectives for short-term mission outreaches are to broaden our perspective of the world and our responsibility to it, deepen our relationship with the Lord, and share the Gospel with others in need. While these objectives are important and needed, Students International intentionally strives to accomplish three additional goals:
1. Enabling outreach participants and the poor to discover how God can use them in their occupation.
2. Providing outreach participants and the poor the opportunity to be a part of the ongoing ministry and not just a short outreach where follow up is difficult.
3. Helping outreach participants and the poor understand the value of building personal relationships in sharing the Gospel.
It's a joy to participate in God's story for His glory!
