Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) AmeriCorps Educators serve in elementary and middle schools during the academic year to implement a practical living curriculum and tutor reading and other academic subjects. Members also plan teen retreats at the camp and other events in the community, help camp staff maintain the facilities, and recruit campers in the schools and community. When summer camp is in session, members will serve as camp counselors or other camp staff. Members are continuing to provide service during the COVID-19 pandemic, though how that service is delivered may look different based on the current state of the crisis and the status of the schools.
CAP AmeriCorps members also have the opportunity to participate in CAP's Volunteer Program. CAP Volunteers commit to direct Service, intentional Community, and Spirituality. In addition to their service, most CAP volunteers share in dinner and devotion several nights a week.
