Appalachia Service Project
ASP (Appalachia Service Project) is a hands-on home-repair ministry that is sponsored locally by Jesse Lee Church. It makes a huge difference for families who live in the mountains of West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina, some of the most poverty-stricken areas of our country. We work not only to make their homes warmer, safer and drier but also to give them hope.
This year Jesse Lee ASP will be once again be offering two concurrent projects – a trip to Appalachia and an ASP-At-Home opportunity. Volunteers who are up-to-date with their vaccinations and boosters will have the option to participate in the ASP summer program down in Appalachia. Those who are not vaccinated or choose not to travel may take part in our ASP-At-Home trip, helping families in the Fairfield County area.
Both options will run the same week and function in similar manners. The specific plans for the two projects are currently being worked out.
To participate in either program, volunteers are required to do the following:
- Register and pay the appropriate fee
- Complete a 2.5-hour Basic Skills session – FIRST TIME VOLUNTEERS ONLY
- Complete a Ramp Building skill training session
- Complete 1 car wash
- Sell at least 25 Shares of stock at $10 per share
- Attend the 4 orientation meetings
Countdown until ASP 2022!
