Appalachian Service Project (ASP) provides one of the most rewarding service opportunities in the nation for high school students and their leaders — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. ASP's goal is to make homes 'warmer, safer and drier' for families in need.
Volunteers work on a variety of different projects, including tasks such as strengthening foundations, patching leaks, fixing roofs, building walls, repairing stairs, digging flood channels, installing plumbing, and painting exteriors. Even if students do not have much building experience, ASP will match each student's skill level to the appropriate projects.
It is much more than a building program though, it’s a relationship ministry. Our group will spend time interacting with the families we will be serving. These relationships will impact students for years to come, and they’ll learn lessons that will enrich their faith and build character for the rest of their lives.
