Wheelchair Ramp Building

All ASP participants are required to participate in a wheelchair ramp building session. This 3-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). 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. If you have a battery operated drill/driver, please bring that as well (no need to go out and buy one as it is not a mandatory tool for the trip).

You will need to register and turn in your Jesse Lee ASP Waiver & ASP Volunteer forms prior to participating in Basic Skills or Ramp Building.  (Jesse Lee Waiver & ASP Forms)
