About Us

7Elements started its roots in the Dominican Republic over a decade ago on the North Coast in a rural fishing village called Las Canas. Our volunteer programs include community-led, sustainable projects and educational curriculum focusing on Human Security, Global Health, and Sustainability.

“We do not believe this job is something that can be accomplished alone and we actively seek partners to help us achieve a stronger and more sustainable world”

Service Learning

Global Health

7e's global health programs focus on community-centric experiences for pre-health students. With an interdisciplinary approach covering general medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, healthcare management, and nutrition, our programs bring invaluable opportunities to work directly with community members in various settings, from small towns to remote villages. Students actively engage in field clinics, assessing patient needs and treating acute conditions under careful supervision. Regardless of background, our holistic approach makes 7e's global health programs ideal for students interested in or currently studying any health profession at any education level.

The focus of 7e's environmental service learning program is to raise awareness of planetary health issues as they relate to climate change, water quality, pollution levels, etc., using a global and local context. Service learning projects work towards improving environmental problematic areas in the Dominican Republic through our S/L programs. Working on these projects provides students with an opportunity to directly experience many of the topics discussed in their learning activities, as well as a chance to observe how communities can work together to solve environmental issues.

Spanish Language

An increasing number of Spanish language students and teachers are turning to service-learning to enhance student learning with respect to oral comprehension, conversation and cultural understanding. When combined with a well planned academic platform, working with Spanish speaking community members during the day while completing service projects offers students an opportunity to expand vocabularies and face the challenges of completing tasks with native Spanish speakers. 7e's programs are well designed to facilitate language learning at any level.
