Builders Beyond Borders
Builders Beyond Borders (B3) develops leadership skills by engaging high school students in local and global community service projects. Each year, student and adult volunteers perform approximately 18,000 hours of community service between local projects and those completed abroad.
Since the nonprofit’s founding in 1993, it has worked in some of the most overlooked communities in Nicaragua, Peru, Guatemala, Guyana, Ecuador, Tobago, Honduras, Chile, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Costa Rica, and Brazil. Additionally, local service projects are focused in southwestern Connecticut. Recently, a TURNER team member traveled with Builders Beyond Borders to Costa Rica to help build a community center in a remote area of the country.
