Mennonite Central Committee is seeking location coordinators for the Sharing With Appalachia People (SWAP) site in West Virginia. The location coordinators have overall responsibility for the implementation of the SWAP program within McDowell County. SWAP provides week-long service opportunities for young people and adults, mainly during the summer months, but also some in the spring and fall. The primary focus of SWAP is housing repair for low-income individuals and families who do not qualify for other low-cost housing programs, with an important secondary focus on mentoring volunteers and staff in Christian service.
The SWAP location coordinators will work with local partners in West Virginia to organize and implement the program, as well as promote communication and understanding between volunteers and local residents.
