Lend-a-Hand for Appalachia provides a cross-cultural volunteer experience for high school students. Through preparation for and participation in an annual trip known as the Appalachian Experience, students achieve an understanding of community building and cultural awareness through education, reflection, and responsible action. Lend-a-Hand for Appalachia improves the impoverished communities of the West Virginia Southern Coalfields Region by repairing homes of less fortunate residents and flood victims. Lend-a-Hand participants also volunteer their efforts to various community organizations - day care centers, food banks, churches, and environmental protection groups with the goal of community betterment.
