What is The Appalachia Volunteers Program?
The Appalachia Volunteers Program is committed to working with the poverty stricken populace of the United States. Our Mission is to learn about the structural and social realities in the United States that leave some people impoverished and marginalized while discussing the injustices that create entrenched poverty. The Appalachia Volunteers Program considers a theological and faith perspective on social justice and pairs this by participating in local service opportunities throughout the year.

This yearlong process culminates in an annual spring retreat trip to struggling regions of the United States. With these goals and our work, the Appalachia Program seeks to build a better future by entering into solidarity with the impoverished of Boston and beyond.
