Are you interested in leading or co-leading a trip? 

“Leaders are expected to interview for the position and if selected, attend a leader orientation meeting and a co-leader meeting in addition to the participant orientation meeting that everyone is required to attend.  Apart from this a leader is expected to organize group activities with their co-leader and also help facilitate group discussions on the trip.  Leading reflection is required for all leaders.  Students should be reflecting on what they have done throughout the trip, and it is the leader’s responsibility to make sure this happens.  Leaders will be provided with training and resources on debriefing before the trip during the meeting outlined above.  By becoming a team leader, you will be eligible for receiving chapel credits for leading reflection.  Trip leaders are the main contacts between the agencies and the rest of the team during the trip.  Leaders are expected to be good examples of the Community Covenant, enthusiastic about going on the service trip, and flexible to the trip logistics because they can easily change.  We ask that this be taken very seriously because it is more than just an opportunity to boost your resume or get chapel credit, but it is a genuine opportunity to serve the Kingdom of God.”
