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.
**Please respect our process and do not apply 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, 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.
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.
