InteRDom Forms Key Relationship with City College’s Dominican Student Association

Share on:

On Thursday, April 2 InteRDom traveled to the City College of New York to give a unique information session.  Hosted by the Dominican Student Association (DSA), the College’s only student-run club specifically for Dominicans and students of Dominican heritage, the information session was among the first in which InteRDom has participated that was completely organized and led by students. 

The DSA’s president, Yanil Rosario, was a key figure in helping to execute the event, which featured a 30-minute presentation, a short video and refreshments.  Afterward, InteRDom team members spoke to students about their experiences in and impressions of the Dominican Republic, and ways in which they can develop their careers abroad.

The information session was open not only to student members of the DSA, but to the entire City College student body.  InteRDom applauds the efforts of City College’s Dominican Student Association, and encourages other student groups to organize information sessions and cultural events that involve their campus communities.

To schedule an information session at your school, please contact Mandy atstudents@interdominternships.org. The InteRDom Internships is an initiative of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE). It offers students the opportunity to gain professional experience by interning with Dominican organizations and businesses related to their field of study.

InteRDom fosters and promotes the professional, academic, scientific, technological and cultural exchange of students and professionals in public, private and non-profit organizations of the Dominican Republic. It significantly contributes to the development of the nation’s employment sector and the advancement of academic research, while providing spaces for personal and professional growth, internationalization and multicultural understanding.
