Builders Beyond Borders enrolling now

Students interested in making a difference locally and abroad and connecting with like-minded students are invited to join Builders Beyond Borders (B3), a nonprofit organization that engages Fairfield County high school students in leadership training through local and global community service projects.

The 25-year-old organization represents more than 20 local high schools and is enrolling students for the upcoming program year.

During the 2016 program year, Wilton High School seniors Sam Foreman and Jessica Walsh participated in the B3 program and went to Ecuador. Sam participated in the B3 program for four years and Jessica for three.

In 2017, B3 students will go to Nicaragua for the global service portion of the program.

Students interested in learning more about the program or enrolling in the upcoming program year are invited to attend a B3 information sessions on Wednesday, Aug.17, or Tuesday, Aug. 30.

The 6:30 p.m. sessions will take place at the B3 office at 66 Fort Point Street in Norwalk. More sessions will be offered in September.
