Student Thoughts on Mountain Alliance:

“I can honestly say that the last two years spent in high school, which were in a large part with Mountain Alliance, were the most productive and well spent years of my high school career. I think the most important ideologies I gained from Mountain Alliance were the service trips. The most memorable expedition was my trip to D.C. There I was taught the meaning of compassion and humbleness especially after working for the D.C. central kitchen and the Coalition for Creative Nonviolence. Both of these were environments with people who were less fortunate than I. Those experiences taught me to appreciate what I have and help does not always require a monetary value. Help can simply be listening to someone talk, or lending a hand at the right circumstance. These views were greatly amplified when I helped with the reconstruction efforts along the Gulf coast, after the Hurricane Katrina disaster of 2005 in particular the town of Pass Christian in Mississippi. With 90 percent of the town having been reduced to rubble and so many people now homeless, the look on the faces of the people when they saw we were there to help was one of appreciation and gratitude. The experience was very gratifying especially knowing work we were completing would be greatly valued and would be used, hopefully, for a long while. “
