Thank you for choosing to join our ministry as a part of a Short-Term Mission Trip. We are excited that your team will be on campus and grateful for your assistance. Our short-term volunteers make a huge difference in what we can accomplish during the year and assist us in providing quality facilities for the students and families we serve.
ON-CAMPUS VOLUNTEER APPLICATION
All volunteers desiring to be on campus must complete the online On-campus Volunteer Application.
HEALTH SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE
When you arrive on-campus, all volunteers must be able to pass our Health Screening Questionnaire and temperature check. Please know, that you will be asked three health questions when you arrive on campus. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, or if you have a temperature of 100.4 or greater, you will be asked to leave campus immediately. The questions are as follows:
• Have you traveled out of the country within the last 14 days?
• Have you had close contact with or cared for someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days?
• Have you experienced any cold or flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days (to include fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory illness, difficulty breathing)?
Your team will be housed in our Bunk House which sleeps 16 on one side and 12 on the other. The 920 Kitchen has been reserved for you as a place to fix meals and hang out.
