If you are looking for something worthwhile to do this summer, the ASP experience is for you!
It is a lot of work and a considerable time commitment, but there is nothing else like it.


Registration Forms

Registration forms will be distributed at the New Person Information Meeting and the Rally, or they are available via a PDF download.

Download the Youth Volunteer Forms

One of these forms needs to be notarized, which can be done in advance or with our notary at the meetings. You are not registered until your forms are turned in. They are required prior signing up for any skills training and car washes.


Registration Fee

The actual cost of food, lodging, transportation, and building supplies is about $650 per person, but we don’t charge you that much to participate. The remainder will be realized through stock sales and car washes.
