This year we will be traveling to Pipestem, West Virginia. Pipestem is a small mountain town of 846 people. We will be working with the Appalachia South Folklife Center, assisting families in need through their Service Work program. College, church and civic groups come to the Folklife Center to learn about Appalachia while performing volunteer work for folks in the area facing hard times. This program helps people with their home repair needs and provides other community service to non-profit and grassroots organizations. The program also will allow us to learn about Appalachian heritage and culture. We are sure to gain valuable teamwork and leadership skills at the same time.
