Adult Volunteer Application
Apply to join the Shirts Across America (SAA) Immersion Trips to New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA) as an Adult Team Lead! During this 2017-18 school year, SAA will be building homes in the Gulf Coast area and may also help to restore the natural environment. We will once again partner with both the non-profit organization, St. Bernard Project (SBP), whom have built 615+ homes along the Gulf Coast since Hurricane Katrina hit over 11 years ago, and the New Orleans base of Habitat for Humanity.
All adult applicants are asked to focus their attention on the safety of the students they oversee. SAA does run a complete background check on prospective Adult Team Leads prior to the trip. Our goal is to create a safe and dynamic experience for everyone involved before, during, and after our trip to NOLA.
As an Adult Team Lead your role will likely include the following:
* be responsible for 5-6 high school students throughout the trip
* drive a mini-van to assist in getting your team to the job site and other activities we have planned
* build homes alongside your high school team
* experience and learn about New Orleans culture firsthand!
Your guidance and positive energy will help these students learn about themselves and the people of NOLA. Space is limited, so apply today!
