La Salle students will partner with the Village Mountain Mission in Luperon, Dominican Republic where they work side-by-side with local communities in a variety of development initiatives. Twenty volunteers will spend one week building homes for families whose current living conditions are below the level of basic needs.
The Village Mountain Mission Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance for families in the Dominican Republic living in poverty.

THIS TRIP is why I went to La Salle. This was the life alerting, adrenaline-seeking experience I’ve always wanted in my life.

Life requires sacrifice. We sacrificed for complete strangers and they trusted us, knowing that because of the sacrifice of complete strangers, their lives are going to be better.

I am already counting down the days until I get to go down again and can only hope to spread the word of this great mission so that we can help as many families as possible. I’ll never forget any of them and a piece of my heart will forever lie down in the Dominican. I’ve never been prouder to be a part of something.
