Volunteers & Interns

Appalachian students engage in well over 100,000 hours of service each year. Internships, tutoring, large and small group service projects, mentoring and service-learning are just a few ways students become involved in the community. We are always open to putting your creative volunteer talents to use too! Additional volunteer programs can be found under Programs & Services.
