Casco Bay High School in Portland Maine is anexpeditionary school that encourages its students to serve society. In April of 2010, the junior class traveled to West Virginia to participate in something called the Junior Journey -- a weeklong volunteer project in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. They worked with the Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Center in Franklin, West Virginia, assisting in building a home for a local family.

The students not only had a chance to literally dig in toa worthy service project but also went beyond comfort zones by traveling to a different climate of the United States (both culturally and physically!) and bunking together in close quarters with their peers.
