Custom Service Trips in the Dominican Republic

Una Vida offers a trip unlike any other trip. It’s the story of a small and close-knit non-profit seeing out the simple, but extraordinary dream of a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer to share with as many people as she can, the impoverished, but resilient community that won her heart and changed her life. It’s a common saying around the organization: you can’t change the world, but you can change the world for someone. Sometimes, you can change your own world. Whether you're with a group or looking for a solo adventure, we're happy to have you!

Group Travel

Specializing in custom trips, we’re happy to work with you to create a unique experience for your team. We’ve done everything from education-themed trips for University of Montana students, to medical missions trips for pre-med students at U.C. Irvine. Vacation Bible School for faith-based groups? Check. Artisanal jewelry making trip for a group of best girlfriends? Check.

Solo Travel

If you’re eager for a life-enriching solo adventure, consider joining Una Vida as an individual volunteer! Una Vida offers one- to three-week placements where you can plug into community projects ranging from educational support, social entrepreneurship, and environmental restoration.


Ready for a longer commitment? Our interns serve between 4 and 12 weeks in an area of their preference: education, social enterprise, environmental studies, or youth development. Interns must speak Spanish at an intermediate level.
