Welcome to the launch of Appalachia Service Project’s Junior High and Middle School Program. We are excited to hear of your interest in our newest program! Please join us as we continue to grow and expand our network of program offerings to further accomplish our organizational mission.
ASP has been hard at work for months developing the Junior High and Middle School (JAM) program, and in June of 2018 hosted a Pilot Week! We are excited now to open up this program to all who are interested in serving with us in the Summer of 2019.
We are welcoming groups of Junior High and Middle School students and their adult leaders to join us next summer for a week-long experience as we dive into questions of what does it mean to lead a life of service, how service connects us with our faith, and what impact we can have on the world around us. This programming is paired with interactive training, meaningful worship, and age appropriate, hands-on service!
Who: Junior High and Middle School students, who have completed the 6th-9th grades with adult chaperones. There must be a minimum of 2 adults for every 5 youth with your group.
What: Learn about service, home repair, and Central Appalachia through a week-long service trip with JAM.
When: Week-long service trips run from Sunday-Saturday each week of June and July 2019.
Where: We will house this program at our ASP-owned facility in Jonesville, Virginia as space capacity allows, before expanding to a additional facilities throughout Central Appalachia.
Cost: $325/person/week. This cost will cover food, housing, programming, and construction tools and materials for your entire week of service. Scholarships available.
Why: ASP offers your Junior High and Middle School students a chance to complete hands-on service and sets them up to continue to serve throughout their lives. At ASP, they are able to truly make a difference for both local homeowners and the community with meaningful projects, while still having age-specific programming in place. We firmly believe that young people can change the world, so come join us soon and see for yourself!
