Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) A local high school student is involved in the opportunity of a lifetime.

Bradley Pierce leaves this summer for Tonga to help a family in need as well as gain some life skills. On Saturday, Mike Parry and his crew at Dairy Queen donated a percentage of their sales to Pierce's trip.

Pierce, who's finishing his junior year, is also using this experience for his senior project.

He's going with HEFY, or Humanitarian Experience for Youth.

"At first when I found out I was going there, I didn't know where it was. And then I looked and it was a little island in the South Pacific Ocean, it's off the coast of Australia kind of. It's a third world country, a lot of poverty there, and so there's a lot of need for people that are living in shacks, they need new houses, new toilets, new plumbing so just anything we can do to help will make a big difference to them," explains Bradley Pierce, a junior at Twin Falls High School.

Pierce leaves in late July and will be gone for a few weeks.
