Current Volunteer Program
Campo Amigo - Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
June 27th to July 22nd, 2020
During this program, volunteers will collaborate with AYUDA’s partner organization Aprendiendo a Vivir (AAV), a local diabetes organization based in Santo Domingo. Accepted volunteers, led by AYUDA staff, will work closely with AAV staff, medical students, and youth leaders to plan and implement community outreach projects and day-long educational outreach and local capacity-building programs that will motivate and support people of all ages with diabetes and their families. In addition, the team will work together to run Campo Amigo and Día de la Familia, two weekend diabetes education family programs. Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn from Dominicans living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and help provide them with tools that motivate them to live happier, healthier lives.
Previous Outreach Programs
En El Camino, HAiti, & Ecuador
Learn about AYUDA’s previous programs and community partners. AYUDA’s story began in Quito, Ecuador, growing into our first Campo Amigo program. As AYUDA continued to expand, we were connected with a partner organization in Haiti through one of our volunteers. While these programs no longer run through AYUDA, each community partner continues to run their own diabetes education initiatives.
