Thank you for your interest in coming back to volunteer with us!
If you are local to Southern Arizona and have volunteered with No More Deaths previously, a returning volunteer application is required if you have been absent from Desert Aid for a year or more.
If you are an out of town volunteer who has spent a month or more with us in the desert, a returning volunteer application is mandatory for your return to Desert Aid.
If you have previously been out in the desert with us for 1-3 weeks, we encourage you to reapply for an upcoming Desert Aid Volunteer Program instead of using our returning volunteer application, and mention on your application that you’re a returning volunteer.
**Please respect our process and do not apply through our returning volunteer application if you do not meet the above criteria.
- Returning volunteers will largely be staffing our humanitarian aid camp, because our need for camp coverage is high right now.
- We have restructured the way we do water drops. If you are interested in supporting in this way, please indicate that in your application.
- Returning volunteers are able to go out as their schedule allows vs. committing to camp on a week-by-week basis. Most current local Desert Aid volunteers go out for anywhere from 5-20 days a month.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Please review our FAQs prior to applying.
If you have previously been out in the desert with us for a month or more or are a local volunteer who has been absent from Desert Aid for a year, please fill out a returning volunteer form here. Applications will be viewed and notification of a decision will be sent to you within two weeks of your submission.
You may also fill out a returning volunteer form for the search and rescue team here.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the volunteer coordinator.
