Age Requirement

Must be 14 years of age and volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Possible Work Projects

Work may include roof and ceiling repair, drywall installation and finishing, flooring installation, and painting.

Skills Needed

While it is always nice to have highly skilled volunteers to help other members of your team, teams of all skill levels are welcome. A local construction coordinator will provide guidance on work projects.

Accommodations and Meals

Because the damage is across 12 counties, where you stay will depend on which county has the greatest need at the time of your trip, as well as the size and skill set of your group. The housing will most likely be in a church with open floor space for sleeping, or some other community building. There will be restrooms, showers, and a kitchen to prepare your own meals. Some locations may provide all meals for a fee.

Cost

Again, because where you will stay depends on a number of variables, the cost may range from $0 – $150/person per week. A location that would cost $150 provides all meals. If there is no cost, a donation to your local coordinator in West Virginia is encouraged. Your group is responsible for all costs associated with your trip. World Renew DRS does not charge for arranging group mission trips.
