Wheelchair Ramp Building

All ASP participants are required to participate in a wheelchair ramp building session. This 3.5-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 snack 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). Additionally, all volunteers must wear a face mask. 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, a speed square, and a pencil.

You will need to turn in your Jesse Lee ASP Waiver & ASP Volunteer forms prior to participating in Basic Skills or Ramp Building.  If you have not done so, please attend one of the Form Signing Drop In meetings listed in the events tab above or download the forms below and bring the signed copy with you to the session.
