Short-term Haiti teams serve in the relational outreach in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, doing activities such as ministering with kids, teaching English as Second Language, playing soccer/sports and/or community recovery and development. Specialized skills such as auto mechanics, personal care and many others are also welcomed.
We ask that team include someone who has Third World ministry experience due to the cross-cultural nature of the ministry. Also Multi-week stays are permissible, with reduced rates for second week.
Please also complete the below application process, because conditions in Haiti are difficult. Note the following:
We expect that pastors and elders will take full responsibility and give great care in selection of mature, experienced team leadership and healthy, positive team members.
We expect that teams coming to serve (ie. all members of the team) will participate in pre-trip training activities that ReachGlobal will provide upon acceptance.
Below is the application and acceptance process:
- Work with your local church pastor to select a point person who will serve as the team leader and single point of contact. We encourage multiple churches from an area to collaborate in sending a multi-church team. This team leader will help organize the necessary paperwork and arrangements.
- After completing the attached Haiti Team Application and meeting with your pastor, FAX this document back to (985) 893-0175. If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (985) 888-1060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- When we have received your application, your team leader will be contacted within five (5) working days by a Volunteer Coordinator to confirm your dates based on current availability.
- After confirmation, the team leader will receive a team packet, by email, with packing lists and other vital information. The team is required to attend an on-site training the morning of their first work day.
