Leadership & RV Needs

Updated December 3, 2021

Leadership Volunteers

For more information on who Leadership Volunteers are, what they do, and how to become one, click here.

NOTE: Given the COVID-19 pandemic, MDS has added COVID-19 project practices to ensure the health & safety of our volunteers, clients, and community partners.

Canadian Volunteers: With the changes in border measures beginning on November 8, Canadian volunteers will once again be able to travel to the U.S. to volunteer with MDS. Some travel restrictions remain, such as proof of vaccination to enter the U.S. and a negative COVID test to re-enter Canada. Volunteers are responsible for their own travel health coverage and should check with their provider if COVID related costs will be covered. MDS Canada will cover the costs of any required COVID tests for Leadership/Long-Term & RV volunteers as long as volunteers submit their receipts.
