Share With Appalachian People
Location: USA, West Virginia, Kimball
Program name: E3 Collective
Volunteer with SWAP (Sharing With Appalachian People) in McDowell County, West Virginia, and get to know members of your team and local homeowners while blessing others with a home that is safe, warm, and dry.
SWAP is a home repair program that uses the efforts of volunteers to address sub-standard housing in eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. Participants should be 15 years or older.
You will be provided with orientation materials which include group activities focused on working in another culture, viewing service as relationship building and an opportunity for mutual learning, Bible study, and prayer.
What will SWAP do?
SWAP provides food and lodging once participants are on site. SWAP pre-selects all clients and work projects, providing building materials to complete the project. In most cases, SWAP will provide the necessary tools for volunteer jobs.
SWAP staff will facilitate evening worship and study sessions. Evening sessions may include presenters from the local community, a locally-hosted dinner, or a local cultural/music event.
