Every winter our students bring their energy, insight, and ambition to the world for seven weeks during Field Work Term. Last year, students volunteered more than 25,000 hours of time collectively helping to find shelter for homeless women and children; teaching ordinary citizens how to decode their own genetics; making green building models; going door-to-door for the EPA; and lobbying for healthcare and livable wages. Some have even created their own nonprofit organizations. Every gift to Bennington is a gift to the world. Make your gift to The Bennington Fund today.
