Students in public service with Builders Beyond Borders

Builders Beyond Borders (B3) will take Fairfield County high school students to the Dominican Republic during the upcoming school year to participate in community service projects. Enrollment applications are available and due July 15.

Students enrolled may engage in fund-raising and service projects during the year to help support their trip. Last spring, B3 took students to Guyana, where they helped build three community centers and three bridges throughout five communities.

“Each year Builders Beyond Borders works hard to provide more and more local community service opportunities to our students in addition to our year-end service trips abroad,” Program Manager Karen Meyer said.

Applications received after July 15 will incur a $100 late fee. Forms are online at The cost for the program year is $2,850.
