VFC (Volunteers for Change) Alternative Break Program

SERCAP’s VFC (Volunteers for Change) Alternative Break Program gives college students an opportunity to serve rural communities in need during school breaks. Students volunteer to engage in a wide range of service-learning activities in communities across SERCAP's seven-state service region, including: Town of Narrows, Newport, Roanoke, Town of Glasgow, Apple Ridge Farm, Town of Clinchco, Town of St. Paul, Town of Honaker, the American Legion Post #3, and the Allegheny Mountain Institute. In addition to providing 30 to 35 hours of community service during their week of service, each student makes a financial contribution of $150 to the community they are serving, further investing in the well-being of the community as a whole.
