Many opportunities for volunteering. Below are a few roles we are looking to fill with dedicated individuals. All of the roles are flexible. You can work on your own terms and the more you become familiar with our organization, the more autonomy you will have:

Team leaders are responsible for the tools and supplies used on a workday, but if you have your own, you can bring them.  As you become more skilled, we hope you will become a team leader.

The most important thing about any workday is to be respectful of those differences and to come to the day with a “servant heart” and not to display judgment or surprise about the living conditions you may find.  And remember, the home we visit is the home someone lives in, so take care! Do not judge the living conditions, remember we are helping people who often do not have a lot of resources.
