Meaningful one-week service opportunities await you in one of the most beautiful yet impoverished locations in the United States. 35% of the population live below the poverty line, more than two times higher than the national average of 13.4%. Of course, poverty affects children the most. Help K-6 grade students with literacy, basic math and science. Organize or paint a classroom. Repair a playground or assist with a school garden. Assist parents and teachers who are trying to ensure their children can reach their potential.
