What makes a great team leader?
Global Village teams set out to build housing and improve a community, but often it’s the volunteers who return home changed.
An excellent team leader facilitates every one of these transformational experiences. If you are ready, we will equip you to be our next star leader.
Team leader job description
Recruit a team of volunteers and inspire them to get excited about the trip, fundraise and prepare to travel. During the trip, help volunteers stay safe on the build site and find meaning in the experience. Our staff plans logistics and handles most of the funds so that you can focus on your volunteers.
Team leaders must be age 24 or older. If you can recruit your own team, such as from your school or local Habitat affiliate, then you are ready to apply. If you want to recruit a team using our website (we call these “open teams”), then you must travel with Global Village at least once before applying.
