Summer Staff 2018 – OPEN!

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.



  • Must be 18 years old and at least one year removed from high school
  • Willing to obtain CPR and First Aid certifications
  • Excellent communication skills
  • The desire to serve volunteers, homeowners, your staff and God
  • Be able to work the entire summer May 2018-August 2018 (Center Directors start May 2018) Some exceptions can be made and should be indicated on the application.


The following are the key responsibilities that each staff member takes on during the summer:  Collective Responsibilities
