Sault Ste. Marie Youth Advisory Council went to the Dominic Republic

Last month, we introduced you to the Youth Advisory Council in Sault Ste. Marie.

It’s group of about a dozen high school students focusing on volunteerism and philanthropy and they are connecting with the global community.

Early this month, they went to the Dominican Republic to help out a community of 300 people build a water-well and they also distributed vitamins and aided in other things.

Tt’s was a 10-day excursion they will never forget.

The cost of trip ran thousands of dollars, but through various fundraisers, including the banners for veterans, they met that goal.

The high school students, all from Sault Ste. Marie, worked in the heat and humidity to better the lives of those less fortunate.

While they got plenty of work done, they also had some free time to explore what the Dominican Republic has to offer, including warm beaches!

This is something they will never forget.

Watch the video above to see more about their excursion.
