Writing Center Abroad

The Writing Center's First Annual Writing Across The Disciplines Tutoring Abroad will take place from March 21-28, 2014 in the Dominican Republic. The Writing Staff will gain hands on experience with students through the "Dare To Dream" project in Monte Cristi. The Dare to Dream project focuses on bringing out the very best in Monte Cristi's orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children. Through innovative English and Spanish lessons that use song and dance to teach students, you'll help raise literacy rates and self-confidence in this small coastal town. The work you do here will help students to eventually pursue a college degree or otherwise become likely to reach employment upon adulthood-enabling them to live their lives as fully and freely as possible.
