Head back to the capital in the morning for a tour of the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the first university, cathedral, and hospital in the Americas. Tour the walled city and learn about the deep history of the first European settlement in the Americas. After touring the Colonial Zone, head to a special dinner and dance show at a typical Dominican restaurant.
At the end of each program, students reflect on their experiences and the issues they engaged with, and talk about how to apply this new understanding to their own worlds. During or after their closing discussion, groups participate in Rustic Ties, a unique and powerful activity that allows students to capture the memories and learning moments of their program to process and share with their communities back home.
