Volunteer Meetings

All meetings are mandatory for new applicants and team leaders!

Veteran Volunteers
  • For returning volunteers, first, fourth and last meetings are mandatory.

New Volunteers
Must attend all the meetings for training purposes. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • There will be no make-up meetings. You are being provided the dates of the meetings in ample time so that you can make the necessary planning to be there. One absence from the scheduled meetings will void your application.
 

We know that volunteers may be involved in extra-curricular activities, sports, club or other social events; however, we need your full attention and commitment for you to be effective. We cannot have volunteers who will allow these other commitments to get in the way of Dr. Moises Simpser VACC Camp, which takes place only one week out of the year. We are asking you to commit your time for 4 to 5 meetings prior to the week of camp and then for the week of camp.


Team leader
  • There will be 2 leaders per team, they both have to attend the first and last meetings. They can alternate attending the 2nd, 3rd and 4th meetings, one leader per team has to be there at those meetings.
