Serve in the Dominican Republic with Young Life Expeditions

Young Life has had an impact in the Dominican Republic since 1985. Through an innate use of the leadership tree, Young Life leaders have grown up being discipled and discipling others. Today, active neighborhood and university ministry exists throughout the country. Join the story of how God is using Young Life in the Dominican Republic!


Teams will participate in the vibrant neighborhood ministry through a "homestay", spending their nights in the homes of Young Life leaders and their days invested in the local area ministry. They will serve leaders and families through a service project, a fundraising event, or an outreach event. They will connect with leaders and club kids through sharing testimonies, devotionals, and worship together. Time in the local area can be anywhere from two to six nights of the trip, with the rest of the time in country adjusted accordingly. 

After the homestay, teams travel to Pico Escondido to work on different construction projects at the Young Life camp, a place that has been in development and hosting campers since 2001. They will be accompanied at camp by several leaders from their homestay area, getting the opportunity to continue to encourage their Dominican brothers and sisters. The work projects will be hosted by the Pico Escondido Sites and Facilities staff, each of whom who have been impacted by the ministry of Young Life in the DR.

At the end of the week, teams will have the chance to choose an activity to further experience the beauty of this island in the Caribbean - whether it is a white water rafting excursion, a day trip to a waterfall, or an overnight at the beach (among others).

Minimum Group Size: 10 people.
Cost: $750 per person, plus airfare for a 7 night, 8 day trip.
Trip Availability: All year round!​
