Our bases are communal living spaces that we strive to make feel like home for each and every volunteer. Every day, a group of volunteers are asked to remain on base for the day to perform a base clean up to ensure the living space remains a clean, tidy and welcoming environment. Additionally, we often request help for special projects from volunteers who possess unique skills; these may include translating, plumbing, electrical work, architectural expertise and more. By leveraging the skills of our volunteers, outside of the typical volunteer work, we are able to better support communities. This is a work type that occurs during both the Response and Recovery phase of each program, to ensure we are able to run our programs effectively.
