ASP Discovery Weekend Overview
ASP’s ministry brings volunteers and communities together in the heart of Central Appalachia, strengthening faith, deepening relationships, and spreading hope. Each year, more than 16,500 volunteers travel to our service area, turning passion into action and transforming the lives of the families we serve alongside.
Discovery Weekends bring adult leaders from new and prospective groups to one of ASP’s year-round facilities to experience ASP first-hand through repairing homes, learning about our rich 50 year history, and building relationships with fellow group leaders. The weekend includes lodging, food, materials, and programming. We want you to have the true ASP experience!
