(4) Once you are accepted onto the team, you will pay a €250 deposit, receive an orientation book, begin fundraising, and attend team meetings. You can pay your deposit here.

No construction skills are necessary to volunteer! There will be a skilled supervisor on site to teach you everything you need to know.
