Wheelchair Ramp Building

All ASP participants are required to participate in a wheelchair ramp building session. This six-hour session is designed to imitate a standard workday on the ASP trip. Participants will be assigned a work crew, based on experience, and will assist in the assembly of several segments of a wheelchair ramp.

Participants should bring their own bagged lunch and water bottle. Everyone needs to wear proper work site attire: long pants, a shirt that tucks in (no sleeveless shirts; no low necklines), work boots (no sneakers). Participants with improper attire will be sent home. Everyone needs to bring a 16 oz. hammer, a pair of safety glasses, a pair of work gloves, a tape measure, and a pencil.

Ramp building sessions will be held on the following dates:

Saturday, May 6
9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Sunday, May 7
12:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Saturday, May 20
