Registration for projects begins March 2, 2015. Please note: If you sign up for a project and NEED TO SWITCH TO ANOTHER PROJECT, DO NOT re-register. Instead, email email@example.com or call 817-272-2963 to make this change.
Site leaders are provided with training for directing volunteers and ensuring project site safety, communication skills, forming relationships with agency contacts, and giving back to the community. Sign up to be a site leader at a project site by downloading the site leader application form (see link below).
