Prep students serve and retreat at Nazareth Farm or Bethlehem Farms, two programs run in rural West Virginia. Students learn there about the dignity of hard work as they work alongside the community members to improve housing, farm, and serve in these impoverished and often forgotten areas. This year students will serve at NazFarm from August 5-11, 2018, and BethFarm from July 8-13, 2018.
We we work with WV Ministry and Advocacy Workcamps in Gilbert, WV. WVMAW is a non-profit organization that was created to help WV residents whose homes have been destroyed by natural disaster, particularly flooding. Our work includes home repair and reconstruction, playground restoration, and parks cleanup. We spend our time out of service with the people of the Gilbert community. This year, we will serve in Gilbert from July 29-August 4, 2018.
Lastly, this year we are starting a partnership with the Appalachian Institute at Wheeling Jesuit University. We will be participating in one of their Rural Immersion programs from July 22-27, 2018.
