I started volunteering with B3 my junior year of high school and one of my biggest regrets is that i didn't start earlier. The B3 community is like family to me, i love the caring environment and the attitude of wanting a change. I traveled to Ecuador and Nicaruagua and had great experiences in both countries. In Ecuador we were up in the mountains digging trenches to lay piping for running water for a community that never had running water before. In Nicaragua we helped build a bridge, during so i got to use a jackhammer! My favorite part of these 2 trips was socializing with the local communities. Coincidentally enough both countries were Spanish speaking and it was great to be able to communicate to the locals and play with the little kids. Everyone who is a part of B3 is very caring and always strives to make the world a better place, even in our own backyards. The biggest advice i can give to a high school student is to get involved with this amazing organization, it is never to late, and any adults out there should look into getting involved as a leader!
