Skilled and Seasonal Volunteers

Skilled and Seasonal Volunteers are an integral part of our volunteer program. Construction workers are used for tasks that need extra finesse or to lead a worksite, nurses dispense vital medications to summer campers, and cooks ensure that our mission groups and alternative spring break students have the sustenance they need to complete physically demanding worksite tasks. If you have a heart to serve, and a week or more available, we’re interested in hearing from you. We hope you can join us!

Skilled Construction

We need volunteers skilled in construction for our WorkFest and YouthFest alternative spring break programs in March and April. Volunteers help to lead students in minor and major home repair projects. Minimum one-week commitment.

Cooks and Kitchen

Cooks and kitchen helpers are needed to volunteer for a week or more March-October. Volunteers participate in our alternative spring break, Mission Groups, and Summer Camp programs providing home cooked meals to those serving on worksites. 

Camp Nurse

Camp Nurses make it possible for campers with medical needs to participate in our enriching summer camp programs. Nurses whose states are part of the Nurse Licensure Compact are eligible. Check here to see if your license allows you to practice in Kentucky. 

Other Short-Term Opportunities

Summer Camp

A week at camp can make a difference for a child in need. Fun activities, supportive guidance, and friendship give boys and girls much-needed joy and confidence.

CAP Volunteer Corps

Our Volunteer Corps, who serve from three weeks to one year, connect participants with education, food, housing repairs, and other vital services

Service Trips

Make your mission trip right here in America. Your group can play a vital role in our home repair programs in the months of May through November.

“I’ve been given so much.
One of the driving verses in my life is Luke 12:48, which reads in part
‘To whom much is given, much is required.’
There’s no way I can pay back what I’ve been given.
When I retired, I knew I wanted to do something
so that other people could have a good life like mine.”

— Jack, Skilled Construction Volunteer
