Habitat Trip 2018

We are raising money to bring our third annual Habitat trip to reality, and this year is shaping up to be the best one yet! This year, however, we did not receive a grant to cover the costs, and we are in danger of needing to cancel the trip. Your donation will help make this trip possible by covering transportation, housing, food, and a donation to Habitat for Humanity of Durham, NC, for the 14 dedicated students (juniors and seniors in high school) and 4 chaperones who are all eager to help build homes for those in need. Our trip is from April 22-27, and if we do not raise enough money, then this life-changing trip will unfortunately not be possible.

Your support would mean a ton to me and my students! Bringing this annual trip into existence has been one of my greatest sources of pride as an educator. Through this program, 36 young people have witnessed firsthand the power of giving back to others, and this year that number will jump to 50. The video you see on this page's profile captures some of the testimony from the first year's students. Thank you so much for donating, and please know that you're helping to show students that the world believes in them and their mission.

Here's why one of this year's students wants to participate:

"I'm the oldest out of all my siblings. My sister is 2 years old and when she grows up, the world will be so different than when I grew up. I want my siblings, especially my sister, to look up to me and know that its possible to create change and see that I am willing to struggle for them not to. I believe this trip can... show me the true meaning of struggling for a greater purpose. I want to help others and learn more about how to help them in the best way. " - Jaqui, senior at MCTC
