In December 2019, two California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) students built a house in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with the nonprofit organization, Global Village. This experience not only embodied the Cal Poly motto of Learn by Doing, but went further, that the students Learned by Giving. Following the impactful, hands on service learning experience, the students dedicated their senior project to aiding future students in finding similar endeavors to do, learn, and give. After struggling to find adequate opportunities and the information necessary for participation, the pair chose to develop a website listing regularly available opportunities and pertinent information needed to participate, all in one place. The website is intended to help future students find similar service opportunities and evaluate the benefits and requirements of each. The site serves as a portal, listing and linking trusted nonprofit organizations, useful tips, and important funding information for hands on, service learning, volunteer opportunities. By simplifying the search process and sharing previous experiences, the website provides future students with the necessary information to evaluate, engage in, and give through construction related service projects located locally, nationally, and internationally.
