Basic Skills Training for First-Timers
Anyone who has not been on ASP before is required to attend a 2.5-hour session that will include brief lectures and demonstrations on work site safety. It will also include instruction and supervised individual practice on the safe use of the circular saw, power drill, and hammer.
Wheelchair Ramp Building
All ASP participants are required to participate in a wheelchair ramp building session. This five-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.
ASP participants are required to work at two car washes prior to the trip. Car washes are held on Saturdays between March and June, in the front driveway of Jesse Lee, with two shifts: 10:30 AM – 1:45 PM, and 1:30 PM – 4:45 PM.
Everyone participating in ASP is expected to sell 25 shares of $10 “ASP Stock.” The first 13 shares of stock should be turned in at Orientation 1. The remainder at Orientation 2.
Packing and Departing
The success of the ASP trip is highly dependent on proper preparation, and that is true for packing. Every participant should download the packing list and follow the instructions carefully.
We will pack the vans on Friday, June 28, at 6:30 PM. We will gather for departure at 7:30 AM on Saturday, June 29. Be sure to bring a lunch.
