    9th through 12 grade students will work alongside local communities to reconstruct homes destroyed by Hurricane Maria for 8 days. They can also expect to explore beautiful Puerto Rico through plenty of adventurous activities. Find out more!

    Over this eight-day service trip, students will work hard on home construction and environmental restoration. They will also learn a lot about the local culture and explore the breathtaking nature. 

    Students will fly into San Juan, Puerto Rico. There is no chaperoned group flight and students will not need a passport. For the rest of the week, they can expect to meet locals at the nearby Villa del Rio, where they will start home construction. There may also be a guided and education tour of San Juan. Some destinations may include the Rio Piedras market, the El Yunque rainforest, and much more!
