Part Four: Backpod & Michael Peters Continued

The student groups plan and fundraise for months prior to the trip, and many times they must sacrifice their own break time from school to attend.

Twilight Frequencies: Among the many people you’ve met participating in Backpod, who are some that have stood out the most, and why?

Michael Peters: The passion of the students who fuel the efforts of Global Brigades really stands out.  The student groups plan and fundraise for months prior to the trip, and many times they must sacrifice their own break time from school to attend.  While peers are off “spring-breaking it” – these students are making a difference.

…and they are dedicated!  Several of the groups who were in Honduras with us have already made it back for a return trip to work another brigade.

Twilight Frequencies: What stood out the most in your quest?

Michael Peters: It was the opportunity to witness how much of a positive impact these students and this organization were having on the local people.  They had such a respect for the local culture.
