5 simple steps to sending a short-term volunteer team
Step 1: Pray and ask others to pray with you.
Step 2: Send an email to email@example.com indicating you would like to send a volunteer team. Please include possible dates for your trip.
Step 3: Download the Team Leader Application and Packet and complete the Crisis Response Team Application found on page 4. Once you have completed it, please scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you are unable to scan, fax these documents to 985-893-0175)
Step 4: Read the Team Leader Checklist found on pages 5-7 of the Team Leader Packet. Determine the total cost of the trip, which includes ReachGlobal Crisis Response fees**, transportation, lunches, and any other costs that the team leader deems necessary.
Step 5: Promote your trip. Using Facebook or other social media outlets are great ways to inform people of your intent to send a team. Also, utilize church bulletins and newsletters, your email list, word of mouth and any other way that you have used for other events/activities.
