Our Massachusetts campus is located in Williamstown in the western part of the state. Since our campus opened in 1987 we have trained thousands of Development Instructors who have worked to help the poor in both Africa and South America.

The campus is nestled on 300 acres of forest land in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains. The American author Cornelia Parker owned the property in the 1930's and 40's. She chose the name Swiss Meadows because the acres of forest and slopes reminded her of the Swiss Alps she loved. Later, the site was used for a prep school, ski resort, vacation retreat and meditation center.

Our students enjoy the natural beauty, outdoor swimming pool, basketball courts and skiing on the nearby slopes. In addition, hiking is plentiful and the Appalachian Trail passes close by.

All of our campuses run on a "collective", which means that the staff and students run the school. Everyone cooks, cleans, takes care of the property and makes decisions about financial matters as a group.

We offer two programs on this campus. The 18-month Fighting with the Poor and the 9-month "Fighting with the Poor" program. Our Development Instructors complete their service work in either Africa or Brazil.

Please feel free to come to any of our Open House events or set up a time to tour the campus. We love visitors!
