Onsite training is provided for all volunteers. In addition to the hands-on work, Workfest provides opportunities to learn about the Appalachian culture, communities, and families being served.

Romero Center Ministries (March 13 - March 18)

The Urban Challenge is an urban, service immersion experience rooted in the Catholic faith tradition. Offering a point of access to the lives and stories of the people of Camden, NJ and its surrounding communities in need. We invite participants to enter into the mystery of the preferential option for the poor, and to encounter the poor and experience what they have to offer. Most participants come prepared for what they will do for Camden, but they're typically unprepared for what Camden can do for them.  Check out this link:https://www.romerocenter.org
