Boone, NC, July 8-13, 2024 – Many students spend their summer break soaking in rays at the
beach or lounging around the house. However, approximately 135 middle and high school-age
students will be hard at work on a week-long community service project in the High Country this

WHAT: World Changers in Boone, NC.
WHO: 135 junior high and high school students from across America
WHEN: July 8-13, 2024
WHERE: Watauga & Avery Counties

Students will be working with a variety of churches throughout Boone and Linville
and staying at Perkinsville Baptist Church and Cornerstone Summit. This summer as a whole,
thousands of student and adult volunteers are registered to participate in dozens of World
Changers projects across the United States. World Changers is serving not only this week in
Boone, but also in more than 20 cities in the US in June and July.

During the week, the students will be working on a variety of assignments that range from
painting houses, constructing or repairing decks, putting on siding, interior work like replacing
flooring, and various other projects to serve Watauga and Avery Counties.

Students traveling with their churches and youth groups pay on average $300 for registration,
as well as their travel expenses to take part in this week where they work on a variety of projects
throughout communities here in western North Carolina. They will come from North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky and Indiana.

The students and adults who participate in World Changers have a desire to serve and grow in
their ability to meet the needs of communities. World Changers participants learn what serving
others really means throughout the week. Working in this city is a way to demonstrate that teens
can get out of their comfort zone, work hard and help others.

World Changers in Boone is partnered with WAMY Community Action to find the homeowners in
need of repairs to their homes. They are also partnering with local churches to provide lunches
to the volunteers. For more information, contact local Coordinators Daniel and Katie Machon.
