THE STORY:

PHILADELPHIA YOUTH FOR CHANGE wrote -

YouthBuild Philadelphia is offering the opportunity for 20 students to travel to Puerto Rico for its annual Service Learning Trip.  For many YouthBuild students -- all former high school dropouts -- this is their first opportunity to travel outside Philadelphia, and experience a new culture, environment, and language.

Service learning is a core component of YouthBuild Philly's comprehensive program. Students earn their diplomas through a rigorous blend of academics, vocational training, and community service. In past years, students travelled to Guatemala and Costa Rica for spring break to provide community service. This year, YouthBuild will go to a small town in Puerto Rico to volunteer, learn about a different culture, and experience a new community.

To help make this trip possible, we are asking supporters to sponsor a student or staff chaperone.

- $1200 donation will cover all expenses for one student, including airfare, meals, lodging, and materials for the service project.
- $400 donation will allow a student to take their first ever plane ride!
- $150 donation will cover meals for the week for one student.
- $50 donation will pay for one day and night in Puerto Rico.
