Description of Organization:

Hampshire County is unique in the opportunities available to students.  Annually we take service trips to Dominican Republic during winter break to work with a very impoverished Haitian community there.  Students are given the chance to "vacation with a purpose", serve the needy and form life-long memories with friends and leaders.  Other trips inculde traveling to a Native American reservation in Montana, hurricane relief on the gulf coast, and rural Haiti.
