The Santo Domingo AmeriCorps members are to work on service projects that help community members to prepare for disasters, bring awareness and the importance of water conservation, and basic knowledge for house maintenance/upkeep. This is an exciting opportunity for the community, as this will be the first program of its kind. Examples of service projects are; restoring, improving and protecting impaired systems by integrating the following activities: roadside and irrigation ditch clean up, and tree/shrub planting for ground cover. AmeriCorps members will also lead projects centered on drought awareness and educate members about the importance of a healthy eco-system. Members are to provide one-on-one trainings to community members inside their homes, this is a primary example of how AmeriCorps members will educate on water consumption, and how it connects to drought.
