The 12 Days of Custom Programs: Service-Learning

Brendan Richardson is a Program Manager in ISA‘s Custom Programs [CP] division and a contributor to ISA Today as a part of ‘The 12 Days of Custom Programs‘ Series.

On the eighth day of Christmas, ISA CP gave to me: programs where I can learn by serving.

‘Tis the season for giving back. Dig a little deeper this summer and make the world your classroom with these academic and service-learning programs in the Dominican Republic.
