All Dunn students are encouraged to participate in an array of cultural experiences that contain components of cultural literacy and immersion, community service, and environmental awareness through travel both nationally and worldwide. Trips are designed to challenge students and faculty to make a difference in the world.
Every February since 2011, in conjunction with a local Rotary club, a group of students and teachers travel to Antigua, Guatemala, to work with the Constru Casa organization to build houses for people in extreme poverty.
Senior Service Project
Instead of going on the senior backpacking trip, some students opt to build homes for low-income families in the San Juaquin Valley. Dunn partners with Self-Help Enterprises, an organization that helps working families improve their living conditions using “sweat equity” as a down payment. Our students work alongside the families who will live in the homes.
We came to Guatemala to make a change, but we also have been changed by this powerful experience.
