What do we do? Where do we go?

the appalachian volunteers program


The program has experienced tremendous growth in recent years.  As a result the group's reach has extended beyond the Appalachian region to include much of the Atlantic seaboard. 
Throughout the year, our members experience the inequalities and social injustices that are part of life for millions of Americans and each spring break, we travel to a cross section of our nations, from urban centers to rural coal mining towns.  We work and learn by day and at night reflect on our experiences. 

The Appalachia volunteers work in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity's Collegiate Challenge, the Southeast Rural Community Assistance Project's Volunteers for Communities and various independent work sites.

Due to an uneven demand for sites, there is a strong possibility that you will not receive a site that was among your preferences.  Students who have completed all fundraising requirements and have attended most meetings are more likely to receive their preferences.
