Our Team in Cuba


Harry Alvarez

Dominican Republic and Cuba Country Director

Harry was born in New York City and raised in the Dominican Republic. Harry graduated from SUNY New Paltz with degrees in Psychology and Spanish and completed Pre-med coursework at Columbia University. After his first summer in Costa Rica in 2008 he decided that there’s more than one approach to helping others. After managing programs in both Costa Rica and Panama for four years, Harry opened our programs in the Dominican Republic in 2012 and our Cuba programs in 2015. Harry carries tremendous pride in bringing students to the Caribbean. In addition to his passion for community work and Latin dance, Harry enjoys cooking and hosting friends at his home in New Orleans.
