In October StudentReach recognized the best of our students, as Guests of Honor at a fundraising event we held for the Sacramento community. Our students told of how StudentReach has been apart of their life changing experience. One of those students was King.
King first started coming to Baja with StudentReach in 2012. He was one of our first life coaching students at a school that we’ve worked with for 4 years. King, decided to come on the advertised Baja trip to build a home for an impoverished family. His ability to speak Spanish and confidence to translate at such a young age was invaluable in Baja. After returning home he continued in our life coaching program and soon after graduated from high school. His work did not end there.
King has been apart of 8 house builds with StudentReach, and is now leading students at his former high school to success. He truly is, a shining example of why we push our students to give back.
Baja isn’t always about the people we are building homes for, many times it is for ourselves. Maybe you have been changed by a trip to Baja, like many of the students we work with have.Giving changes us to do more and be better in life.
