A key role on our build site, the Build Registration volunteer is responsible for registering team day volunteers upon their arrival at the worksite. This role is the first contact many volunteers will have when they come on site. The main responsibilities include: tracking attendance, having waivers signed and stored appropriately, distributing t-shirts, taking pictures of crew on-site, and providing necessary safety instructions and PPE equipment, including hard hats, steel toed shoes, and tool belts. This position requires someone with a flexible schedule to commit a minimum of 3 hours per shift.

Global Village trips take place around the world and can be a life changing experience. It’s an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of development issues, to learn more about another culture and about yourself. You will be more than a tourist as you are welcomed into the community by your hosts and introduced to the local culture as a guest. You will work together, share stories, and make friends.
