General Support Volunteers play a vital role at FD programs, so look forward to a week that will forever change your life! General Support volunteers attend First Descents programs to assist the staff and participants in anyway possible. They are the people working in the background to ensure that things run smoothly for everyone at the program. The majority of program responsibilities take place in the kitchen – assisting the chefs with grocery shopping, food prep, cooking and kitchen cleanup.
As a volunteer, your number one priority should be the participants! Going kayaking, climbing, or surfing can be one of the perks, and lead staff will make an effort to get you out there, but your focus should be on providing the best possible experience for the participants at the program.
First Descents will provide meals and lodging accommodations for all volunteers.
Volunteers are responsible for their own transport to and from the program location.
