Service panel highlights student and alumni experiences

Written by Emily Paul

Goureesh Paranjpe, Pi Kappa Phi member and UMBC alumnus, worked with Build America through his chapter on campus.

Build America, founded by Pi Kappa Phi and part of The Ability Experience, brings college students on a six-week trip to build handicap accessible amenities at summer camps across the country. Part of the fundraising money Pi Kappa Phi brothers raise is used to pay for the supplies needed to build such amenities. During his six weeks of service, Paranjpe served as a driver and also the crew chief, which put him in charge of the health and safety of his crew. 

“I’d say that over the large percentage of the time we’re doing this, the thing that brings you back and the thing that keeps you going is the camper interaction. I don’t think I can pinpoint it down to a single event, but I’d say any moment that I can hang out with the campers [was it],” said Paranjpe.
