Volunteers needed for rebuilding teams to help build classrooms at the Moravian Memorial School on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
The estimated cost of the trip will be around $900, which includes airfare, meals while on site and accommodations. The BWM is helping to heavily subsidize the trip, lowering the cost to participants to $400. Sleeping arrangements will be cots set up in the Memorial Moravian Church compound.
Dates of service:
Team 1: July 18 – 25
Team 2: July 25 – August 01
Team 3: August 01-08
Team 4: August 08 – 15
Team 5: August 15 – 22
Work to be done requires skills in demolition (week 1 and possibly week 2) & also reconstruction. This will be heavy-duty work. Ultimately, there will be painting of the classrooms.
The Moravians of St. Thomas have a goal of having the school open to receive students on August 27.
The nature of the work for each of the weeks will be dependent upon the work that is accomplished in the prior week. The needs will be communicated prior to departure.
A list of items for serving in this capacity will be provided. Volunteers will be asked to provide their own work gloves, masks, goggles, etc. Tools will be available on site.
Teams are limited to 6 people. Due to the urgency and timing of this service please contact us to your interest as soon as you are able.
