The Christian Appalachian Project Volunteer Office is a flurry of activity these days as we review some outstanding applications for summer camp and long-term volunteering. But if you're worried about missing one of our application deadlines, don't be! We are continuing to accept applications for this summer and fall, and we look forward to receiving yours. We are currently seeking volunteers for the following opportunities:
Summer Camp: We are in need of camp counselors, lifeguards, and medical staff (RNs, LPNs, and EMTs) for Camp Shawnee (June 3-July 26) and Camp Andrew Jackson (June 17-August 2). Minimum three-week commitment for counselors and lifeguards; minimum one-week commitment for medical staff. Individuals accepted for a commitment of 7-8 weeks may be eligible to serve as AmeriCorps members and could receive a $1,175 Education Award for student loans or tuition. Our summer camps serve children ages 6-15, most of whom come from low-income families. Watch our video to learn more.
Short-term: In addition to summer camp volunteers, we also need volunteers for our home repair programs and in our thrift store this summer. Minimum three-week commitment.
Long-term: Are you seeking a year-long commitment to full-time Service, intentional Community, and Spirituality or personal reflection? Our next long-term volunteer class will begin their service August 1-September 21, and we will be interviewing candidates throughout the summer. See available positions.
