Allendale Columbia School

Rochester, United States

The school visited Dakar and Mbour Senegal to build a school in a rural village with 14 Upper Schoolers (9-12 graders) for two weeks last May.

For students to have an understanding and empathy around what education looks like in other countries and then to be able to work side by side with youth and villagers to literally build the concrete blocks that will house the new school there was a life-changing experience.

Age Level: Grades 9-12
