Center Information

Sleeping Quarters: This is not an air conditioned facility. Volunteers will sleep in classrooms in the lower level (which typically stays cool), the stage, and overflow on the gym floor. ASP recommends volunteers bring fans with them to help keep the space cool; although being set in the mountains will help cool the space at night.

Cafeteria/Kitchens: The cafeteria is in the main building with plenty of seating and will act as a recreation space as well.

Showers: ASP will provide an outdoor shower trailer with 3 stalls for each gender.

Recreation Space: Cafeteria, gym space, and the school property which includes a playground and some green space.

Closest Medical Facility: Dickenson Community Hospital (24 min drive)

Interesting Facts: If you love bluegrass music, you’ll be interested to know that the Stanley Brothers (Ralph and Carter Stanley) are from Dickenson County and you can visit the Ralph Stanley Museum. Plus – you can visit the “Grand Canyon of the South” via the Breaks Interstate Park! This park is a geologic miracle and from the overlooks you peek into Kentucky. Not to mention that at the top of the Birch Knob tower in Clintwood you can see into Ohio on a clear day!
