Turning Point Students Featured in Service Learning Video
Posted 12/22/2017 12:00PM

During their nine-day service learning trip to Peru, Turning Point students were featured in this video showing how they built a greenhouse with locals in Cuzco, providing a family with steady, year-round income, potentially for generations to come. This income will pay the bills, create a healthcare plan, and pay for education for the daughters. In addition, ten percent of the proceeds from the greenhouse will be dedicated to starting the next greenhouse for a family in need.

Learn more about the trip here, including how students leveled the ground for the greenhouse, placed over 5,000 30-pound bricks, and waded through knee deep to complete their task... all while having the time of their lives.


Turning Point Middle School provides students with real-world experiences as a foundation for a lifetime of “learning through doing.” Each trip is designed to provide an opportunity for students to expand their knowledge, deepen their friendships, interact with a broader community, and develop their independence. By experiencing unique places and cultures domestically and abroad, students become increasingly culturally competent and adaptable; they are well-prepared for an ever-changing globally connected world. All the while, life-long memories are made.
