College Service Project – On Campus Chapters

College Service Project inspires students to lives of Christian service and leadership through home repair for low-income families in Central Appalachia and back in their home communities. ASP’s founder, Tex Evans, always said: “We’d love for all ASP volunteers to come back each summer, but if they don’t because they have started this in their own community, we’d love that even more”. College Service Project (CSP) seeks to provide young adults with a chance to continue and share the transformational experience they’ve had in Appalachia with their surrounding collegiate community.

 

Now it’s in 48th year, ASP has relied on college-aged young adults to operate its Summer/Youth Program by guiding groups of volunteers through their home repair service project and providing Christian leadership. These summer staffers gain significant skills in organization, leadership, and volunteer management. ASP also attracts several college students as volunteers during our Year Round Program. CSP will continue to engage or re-engage these summer staffers, college volunteers, and past youth program volunteers with service and help them gain valuable skills in community outreach.

 

College Service Project is a student-led, campus-based organization. Each chapter is nationally affiliated with Appalachia Service Project and follows ASP’s model for home repair projects in their local community. Students involved with CSP will:

 

  • Distribute Home Repair Applications in their local community in order to find families to serve through construction repair work
  • Conduct initial home visits (IHVs) with families that have submitted applications, select homes and projects to be completed, and carry out all project planning and construction management
  • Recruit volunteers within their community to volunteer their time to work on these projects
  • Host fundraisers and gain community sponsorship in order to raise the funds necessary to complete their projects
  • Serve their community in other ways that promote service and social justice
  • Look into recruiting and carrying out a trip to one of ASP’s Year Round centers during the fall, winter, or spring
  • Recruit potential summer staffer applicants
  • Recruit local churches as potential ASP volunteers
