WORKCAMPNE
February 6, 2011

For the past five years, workcampNE has been the central focus of my summer. I have witnessed hundreds of teenagers positively affect hundreds of lives. They have provided repair to homes that never would have never been able to done on their own. I'm proud to be associated with them and as a high school teacher, i cannot think of a better way to spend my summer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the faces of the residents as they have a home they are no longer ashamed of. Also the pride in the students who have done great deeds while learning skills that will be further used in life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have it extend beyond the New England community.
