    I want to bring a group of my High School students to Puerto Rico for 7-10 days. We would split time between volunteering our time and exploring/learning.

    The key consideration is that our students here at Stamford Academy are very low income and our budgets are minimal. I need to find a grass-roots way to make this happen that would include us either staying with local families, camping out, or staying at a youth hostel etc.
    Can you suggest any contacts for me?
