Who can volunteer?

TVBS is targeted towards allowing CLC young people (high school and college age) a chance to serve in God’s Kingdom. The program is also highly dependent on adult chaperon volunteers. If you are over the age of 25 and have a driver’s license and a good driving record, please consider serving as a chaperon/driver.

How do I volunteer?

To volunteer, go to the online registration here or contact your pastor or the TVBS Committee.

Please take your commitment to volunteer seriously. The TVBS Committee realizes that some things occasionally come up (sickness, death in the family, etc.). However, the congregations are counting on you. It can be difficult to replace a trained volunteer after the teams are set. Without our volunteers, this important mission outreach effort will not get done. Please make every effort to keep your commitment.

What do I need?

Please pack lightly because space is limited. One suitcase or duffle bag per volunteer. (An additional small backpack or tote bag is fine.)
Teaching notes
Thank you notes for hosts
Extra spending money
Comfortable shoes/sandals
3 pairs of shorts/tops
