In keeping with its mission to promote academic and cultural exchange, internationalization and cultural understanding, InteRDom invites you to register and travel to Port-au-Prince, Haiti to attend the United Nations Association of the Dominican Republic’s Youth of the Americas Forum and community service week in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on August 13-21, 2009.

The Forum, sponsored by Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD), Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE) and the United Nations Association of the Dominican Republic (UNA-DR) in conjunction with the Haitian Action for the United Nations (AHNU), will take place within the framework of the Second Haitian Model United Nations Conference and seeks to engage international, Dominican and Haitian students in a dialogue to design and implement development projects in Haiti.

All participants in the Forum will also take part in a Community Service Week, where students can choose to participate in one of five Commitments to Action with the Clinton Global Initiative that are already being executed in Port-au-Prince.
