Each year, more than 100 young men work on CASP rebuilding and forestry projects. The goal of the CASP program is to have morally sound work environments in place where Anabaptist young men could serve should the United States reactivate a military draft. This program operates under Christian Aid Ministries through an agreement with the U.S. Selective Service System.
Many recipients have been blessed through these pilot projects. The CASP volunteers who hail from 18 conservative Anabaptist constituencies also benefit. They form lasting friendships and grow spiritually.
“Some of my highlights were Bible studies, devotions, the discussions in the bunk trailers, singing at work, and the meals we were fed,” wrote one New Order Amish volunteer. “Heading home was the most dreaded part of our four weeks!”
