Orphanage Outreach
Since 1994, this Christian-based interdenominational nonprofit organization has supported three orphanages in the Dominican Republic and sent individual volunteers and groups to work with the children educationally or on projects that have transformed the orphanage facilities. Its Touch the Future Summer School (mid-June to mid-August) provides invaluable educational enrichment to prepare children of all ages for formal schooling. Scheduled family camps also provide memorable volunteer modeling opportunities for grandparents and their grandchildren. Thirty-five percent of volunteers are older adults (review by Alison Gardner).
