Returning Desert Aid Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in coming back to volunteer with us!

If you have previously been out in the desert with us for between 1-3 weeks, we encourage you to reapply for an upcoming program, and mention on your application that you’re a returning volunteer.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • 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, usually in 2-5 day periods.

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, please fill out a returning volunteer form here.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the volunteer coordinator.
