Soon after SON approves your submitted application, we will send a Welcome to the team email followed by a hard copy of your welcome packet and Team Training Manual. In early March, you can expect to be contacted by your Team Leader in order to coordinate the first on-line Team Training session. We use a video conferencing platform, called Zoom. Each team is made up of volunteers and come from different parts of the country. Teams typically meet 5-7 times leading up to your team’s departure for the mission.
By the end of the training, you will know your entire team by face and name, and also what to expect and what is expected of you as a fellow team member. The training will cover everything from how to begin fundraising – to how to prepare for the camps – to how to pack for the trip and survive passport control! Most importantly, our goal is for you to feel confident and prepared before you head for the airport.
