Dozens of students are in North Alabama this week with the goal of making a difference.

More than 16,000 students across the nation and Canada volunteer to help improve homes for others with "World Changers." Sixty-two students from Tennessee and North Carolina are in Huntsville. The students pay to be a part of the "World Changers" organization.

They'll help with a variety of projects, including painting and siding replacement on homes. 

"The students pay to come here and they drive, some of them, hours to come and just to stay in schools or churches, sleep on the floor, air mattresses. They give a lot and they want to come and just be a part of something big," said Lauren Jones, World Changers.

The students are also running vacation bible schools and backyard bible clubs while they're in town.
