Without spirit, without willpower, without opportunities for overcoming structural barriers, a full life feels unattainable. It is the Coalfield Development’s belief that the cause of so many woes in Southern West Virginia is the lack of full lives being lived — the emptiness, the despair built up over generations, which leads to a lack of ambition, gumption, and an inability to dream. Therefore, simply building a new home for a person or giving them a two-year job is not sufficient for smashing down structural barriers and ending generational cycles of poverty. Rather, opportunities for full lives must be provided. As such, the primary strategy of this program and of Coalfield Development overall is to provide valuable, varied, and empowering opportunities for low-income young adults in Appalachia.
