SITE LEADERS

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). 

Safety is an important part of The Big Event. Site leaders inspect and visit each project in order to ensure the quality and safety of the location and collect required liability waiver forms from volunteers.

Site Leaders training sessions are mandatory. If you apply to be a site leader you will be contacted upon approval with dates, times and locations of the training sessions, snacks will be provided.
