Appalachia Service Project Campus Chapters

 

Appalachia Service Project’s College Programs connect young adults across the United States with opportunities to enact change in both their collegiate communities and the Central Appalachian region through advocacy, education, and service, all while equipping students with skills of leadership, entrepreneurship, management, and organization.

 

While many college groups travel to Central Appalachia to serve with ASP over their fall, winter, and spring breaks, some students have taken the extra step to engage with AS’s mission year-round. These Campus Chapters provide an opportunity to engage and engage young adults with service and help them gain valuable skills in community outreach.

 

Appalachia Service Project’s Campus Chapters are student-led, collegiate based organizations. Each Campus Chapter is nationally affiliated with Appalachia Service Project and brings ASP’s organizational mission to their collegiate community and college-aged students to experience and serve in Central Appalachia. Students involved with Campus Chapters work towards the following goals of will service, advocacy, and fundraising:

 

 

SERVE

  • Serve their collegiate community through existing organizations to promote service and social justice with their peers
  • Coordinate a minimum of one trip to one of ASP’s Year-Round centers over Fall, Winter, or Spring Break

 

ADVOCATE

  • Host events on campus and in the surrounding community to raise awareness of substandard housing, Central Appalachia, ASP, and other related social issues
  • Identify potential summer staffer applicants for Appalachia Service Project
  • Share ASP volunteer opportunities with other potential, local groups (e.g., churches, high
  • schools, other student organizations, etc.)

 

RAISE

  • Fundraise for organizations addressing substandard housing, including ASP
  • Leverage community partnerships as a means for fundraising, in-kind donations, etc.
