Appalachia Volunteers of 

Boston College

Serving Boston, the eastern United States, and beyond in solidarity since 1978.


The Appalachia Volunteers program is led entirely by undergraduates. The Leadership Council coordinates the group's activities throughout the year, and more than seventy upperclassmen lead our 650+ members on spring break trips each year. We are graciously supported by faculty and staff in BC's Office of Campus Ministry.
