What You'll Need To Know About Volunteering At Alpha (Click Here to Download a Copy from our Volunteer Coordinator)
We do not charge a fee for Volunteers to come on campus, like many organizations do, for short term missions trips. However, because of this we do not have a set amount of money to do projects with. We ask that each group raise the money to accomplish the project that they undertake.
We have a list of projects (see below) that we undertake each year. This list changes over time, but we try to have the most updated list on our website. Each group is free to “adopt” a project (or several). When you “adopt” a project you agree to provide the funding for that project. How you come up with that money is up to the group, church or organization. We have expensive projects and very cheap projects. If you are unsure if your group is qualified to undertake a certain project, just ask if we have someone that can lead the work. Sometimes, however, a professional may be needed.
We can provide lodging for up to 20 people on our campus. We suggest air mattresses or cots be brought to lay on the floor. Bring bedding, toiletries, towels & wash clothes, and everything else you will need. Because of limited shower facilities, expect to take short showers. For youth groups we can split boys and girls, but there needs to be chaperones of both sexes. The closest hotel/motels are 20-30 minutes away. You are welcome, of course, to lodge in town.
Your group is in charge of bringing & preparing all meals, and cleaning up after each. You will have your own kitchen facilities, and access to 2 refrigerators.
