7 Elements is a Volunteer Organization based in the Dominican Republic
Our mission is to introduce students to Human Security issues and implement socially responsible and culturally appropriate service projects in less secure communities.
7 Elements began its roots in the Dominican Republic over a decade ago on the North Coast in a rural fishing village called Las Canas. Our short-term volunteer programs include community-led, sustainable projects and educational curriculum focusing on Human Security, Global Health and Sustainability.
7 Elements has expanded its educational programs to Peru and Belize through partnerships in local communities. The goal is to teach students about cultural preservation and its relationships with Human Security in a rapidly globalizing world. We challenge young leaders to expand their perspectives and commit to global citizenship through awareness, action and a passion to cultivate positive change.
“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”
