Adult Volunteers Needed!!!

We are now soliciting/recruiting adult volunteers to assist with WorkCamp 2019 in any of the following capacities:

  • Adult Crew Leader – attend WorkCamp for the full week, lead a crew of 5 teens, stay with our parish at the high school
  • Contractor – attend WorkCamp from Sunday through Thursday (minimum), responsible for one of the WC projects, stay on-site with other Contractors (limited home repair/DIY experience necessary)
  • WorkCamp Security Volunteer – come to WorkCamp just one day (TBD), assist with on-site security (herding cats/teenagers)

The most critical adult volunteer roles for us to fill are for Adult Crew Leaders and Contractors. The number of teens we can take to WorkCamp is based on how many adult volunteers we can recruit. If you have any questions about these adult volunteer roles or are interested in attending WorkCamp as an adult volunteer, please contact us at workcamp@sainttheresaparish.com. Thank you!
