  • “I would highly recommend this program. It was truly eye opening to the amazing world around me.”

    —Student 2018
  • “This was one of the most amazing experiences of my entire life and I am so grateful for everything everyone has done in order for me to get here. Coming here introduced me into the real world. When I left Ohio 2 weeks ago I was super shy and always stuck to myself and had so much trouble finding people with common interests and coming here changed that! Never stop doing this amazing thing for kids all over Appalachia.”
