Steps to Join a Brigade

Find Your Brigade Page

2. Once you have found your chapter, click on the appropriate program icon.
3. Once you get to your chapter's program-specific homepage, click on the "Brigades" sub-tab. Search among the upcoming brigades, and find the one that corresponds to the correct month, year, and destination country of your brigade.

Note: You can also find your Brigade Page by requesting the page URL from your Brigade Leader.

Sign Up as a Volunteer
