Want to make a difference? Up for a real challenge? Then you might have what it takes to join ASP’s summer staff.
Summer staff members will work with a team of three or four other summer staff members, running the volunteer program at your location. Every week, they will welcome a new group of volunteers and make sure that they provide quality home repairs to Appalachian families. Summer staff members will help volunteers develop meaningful relationships with those families, while making sure the volunteers’ needs—from food, tools and materials to rest and encouragement—are being met. Every evening when the volunteers gather at your center tired and fulfilled, you will lead in spiritual programs that help them appreciate, learn and grow from their incredible experience.
The work is demanding. The pace is hectic. The conditions are far from luxurious. But, the rewards are truly life-changing. You will see the lives of Appalachian families changed and the hearts of volunteers transformed. Best of all, you will know that for one entire summer, you did all you could and gave everything you had to serve your fellow human beings and serve your God.
