Livin’ La Vida Loca: A Dominican Republic Internship

28 01 2010

This fall, Arts in Transformation students Jill Osileski and Kari Reed needed to complete the required internship for the Arts in Transformation program. Unlike many student interns, they didn’t end up earning their credits in an office building making coffee.  They didn’t even end up earning their credits staying in the United States – they found themselves traveling to the Dominican Republic for a three-month-long internship experience with Eastern University partner BuildaBridge International to work with local sex-workers making jewelry, building relationships, and learning through real, hands-on experience.
