Connect to an Existing Chapter

Volunteers are critical to the implementation of Global Brigades’ Holistic Model through Brigade programming and we are open to welcoming individuals that are not currently affiliated with a Chapter or University. Connect to an Existing Chapter in the United States, UK, or Canada if you are interested in pursuing an upcoming Global Brigades program and are not interested in creating a Chapter in your community.

Select a Chapter

Select your program of interest on the right to view current Chapter Leaders open to hosting individual volunteers outside of their campus or community. Each opportunity includes a link to that Chapter’s Brigade Page to view specific date ranges as well as email contact information for their most recent Chapter Leader. Before signing up as a volunteer on the Brigade Page, email the Chapter Leader to inquire about next steps to sign up as a volunteer with their team or to ask about their itinerary.

Expect to be included in all team emails/communications if both you and the Chapter agree that you are a good fit for each other in terms of program, flight scheduling, donation goals, etc. We encouraging networking with fellow volunteers as much as possible in the time leading up to your Brigade or TeleBrigade.

*This page is updated regularly and will continue to include more Brigade/TeleBrigade options as opportunities arise. If you are a Chapter Leader open to hosting independent volunteers on your next Brigade/TeleBrigade, please submit our Chapter Interest Form.
