Service: Building a House

Service plays an important role in the Chrysalis program. We emphasize the importance of giving back, and considering others in our day to day lives.

Several of our students and staff drove to the Flathead Valley to partner with Habitat for Humanity this weekend. Students assisted in building a house, and they did a great job! It was an excellent effort and an empowering opportunity for girls.

The girls ended the day with a beautiful fall hike:

Other Chrysalis service projects include volunteering at the local Animal Shelter, providing activities and building relationships with nursing home residents, and service projects on our bi-annual international trips. A group of students will head to Mexico later this fall to help with a sea turtle research project. Be looking for an update in late November!

  1. I received a phone call a few days after this work day from the project leader and he was impressed by the work ethic of our girls and how much they were able to accomplish and that they are excited and hopeful that will are able to go volunteer again. We have another work day planned with them on the 6th of November to get a little more work done.
