Admissions timeline for long-term applicants
Christian Appalachian Project accepts long-term volunteers in the winter and fall of each year.
Fall 2013 admissions
Applications currently being accepted.
Materials that were received by the March 25 deadline will receive priority consideration, but we will continue to accept applications until positions are filled. Applicants who submit their materials after March 25 will have a different interview schedule.
Promising applicants will be invited for a personal interview in Kentucky. The on-site interview gives the applicant the opportunity to spend a night or two in a volunteer house, meet current volunteers and program staff, and see our programs in action. We feel this opportunity greatly benefits you as an applicant. If a personal interview is not possible, interviews will be conducted by Skype (or in rare cases, by phone).
April 15-May 3: Interviews are conducted on-site. Interviews are 1-3 days long and consist of at least one dinner and devotion in a CAP Volunteer Community, an interview with the CAP Volunteers Admissions Coordinator, and interviews with 2-3 program managers.
April 8-May 3: Applicants interview with CAP Volunteers Admissions Coordinator, then with 2-3 program managers.
One week after interview: Applicants will return “Prospective Volunteer Interview Feedback” form and rank their top three service placement choices.
*May 13-17: Admissions Coordinator will notify applicants whether or not they will be offered a placement.
May 31: Deadline for applicants to notify CAP Volunteers of decision.
*We understand that many applicants will be weighing multiple options when discerning if God is leading them to a long-term commitment with CAP, and we do not wish for our timeline to discourage anyone from applying. If your situation requires that you have a decision from us prior to May 13, please let us know.
August 1-September 21, 2013: Volunteers arrive to begin their service.
September 22-27, 2013: Volunteer Orientation.
