This experience will completely change your outlook on community service! 15-20 students embark on a week long adventure down to New Bern, North Carolina where we partner with Habitat for Humanity and the local community of New Bern to build a home for a family in need. We work on everything from drywall, to framing, to building a tool shed! You absolutely do not need any prior experience with tools or home building to go on this trip. Over the course of the week our group becomes a family as we eat, sleep, and work together every day. The quaint town of New Bern welcomes us with its famous southern hospitality to make for an incredible week. This Spring Break Trip offers great opportunities to make new friends, reflect on a personal level, and gain a greater appreciation for what we usually take for granted. You most definitely wont regret spending your spring break in NC with BHLP and Habitat for Humanity!
