Volunteer Opportunities • (http://eepurl.com/ip5ZnQ)

Founded in 2018, The 4North Project is a 501(c)(3) that solves humanitarian issues with a focus on travel, volunteering, and unique experiences. We establish relationships with local communities in developing worlds, raise funds, and fulfill projects/ programs that improve their way of life while still respecting their culture and environment.

Population(s) Served

A 4North Vision Trip is designed for volunteers to tour, connect and deliver. This experience will give you a full scope of what we offer. As you tour the communities on an ATV, connect with the people, and deliver clean drinkable water (DarAgua), our Vision Trip will help you discover your role for the next 4North journey.

Population(s) Served

Skills4Living is a collaboration of different skill sets, passions and talents offering creative workshops, driven by the volunteers, that educate and guide the communities in a positive way. Your journey will start moments after you land. The team will begin the preparations for the 2 day workshops you will be presenting to the people. We've seen many workshops in the past from STEAM, dance empowerment programs, sports activities, sustainable gardening, sewing, painting, self-defense courses and much more. You will end your journey by delivering our clean drinkable water (DarAgua) to the communities near Bani.

Population(s) Served

Off The Grid is an intermediate mix of servicing the people and stepping outside of your comfort zone. Your journey will start with taking one of our ATVs or motor scooters into the developing communities to deliver clean drinkable water (DarAgua) or offer immediate food assistance. You will be servicing areas that are not located on Google Maps. At times, you will be without cell service and electricity. You will also have the opportunity to offer eye exams to the people in need or be a part of a restoration project for a very deserving family.

4North's Co-Founders, Matt Gewirtz and Tyler Lagalo, traveled to the Dominican Republic 4 years ago for their first global responsibility assignment. They discovered the incredible people, culture and way of life. Today, after several programs and projects, they are inviting a small group to travel with them and witness what continues to bring 4North volunteers back.

Beyond The Blue is an all-inclusive experience that explores locations around the island. In addition to the volunteer projects that align with our four focus areas, we will have the opportunity to turn your journey into an adventure by white water rafting, paragliding, hiking to waterfalls, navigate to a small private island and much more.

Population(s) Served

Stronger Together is a collaboration of different skill sets and talents offering free health checks throughout the developing communities near Bani, Dominican Republic. Health checks include blood pressure, heart rate, sugar levels and oxygen levels. In addition, we will be offering non-medical eye exams, hearing screening, physical therapy, treating cuts/scrapes, pain relief, personal hygiene courses and medicine distribution.
