Meet Ben and NIck, two of our many dedicated volunteers.

Ben and Nick, Ascension Missioners

Ben and Nick are members of Ascension church and seniors at Winters Mill high school. They're members of the National Honor Society, Eagle Scouts, and both hold part time jobs. 

Ben serves as president of his NHS chapter and is a peer mediator at Winters Mill. This spring he will be a camp counselor for middle schoolers at a week-long outdoor school experience.  Ben plays in his church’s praise band and is interested in guitar, photography, video production, the outdoors and scouting. 

Nick is Vice President of Key Club and is treasurer of his class; he is concurrently enrolled at Carroll Community College. Nick enjoys working to help others in his church and the community. 

Ben and Nick participated in Dream Builders trips in 2015 and 2016 in West Virginia. They liked getting to know the families while working on the houses. Both boys are grateful for the opportunity to work with other kids and adults to produce such a positive project. Ben and Nick would like to participate in another build this summer.
