NYIT – Undergrads – Mar 17 – Mar 25
Cost: $1,395 plus airfare
The New York Institute of Technology, with campuses in New York City and on Long Island, NY is sending undergraduate volunteers for the 2nd year to build one house at our site in Jinotega, Nicaragua. This group of 12 students will work with community members to change the lives of a family for generations to come. The transition from a home that does not protect them from the elements, to one that will have doors and windows that lock, a tile floor that is raised above grade to avoid flooding and a roof frame that is welded to reinforcing bars that run to it’s foundation, will forever change this family’s health, well being and outlook on life. Our volunteers witness this 60 times a year in three of our four sites where we build houses, creating change that impacts multiple families and in multiple communities. Thank you NYIT!
