VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

  1.  We ask for our volunteers to have a deeper commitment and to commit to two weeks in Haiti.  This is particularly required for new volunteers. If you are a recurring volunteer and can only stay for one week for valid reasons, exceptions will be made.
  2. As a volunteer, you are also required to commit to a workplace for at least 3 days at a time. For example, if you choose to work at the malnutrition clinic, you are required to stay there for at least 3 days before deciding to work at another place.  If you choose to switch placements throughout the trip, we ask that you commit at least 3 days to that place as well.
  3. In order to be a volunteer with TWA in Haiti, you are required to attend at least two events, fundraisers or meetings. You can come to 2 meetings, a fundraiser and a meeting, 2 fundraisers, however you wish to distribute that.  But you must be involved in at least two TWA gatherings before we arrive in Haiti.
  4. Photography – As a volunteer with TWA, you are only permitted to take  pictures of people if they give you their permission. You are not allowed to take pictures of people’s living environments or devastating structures unless those in the community personally give you their permission.  TWA tries not to be invasive or intrusive to our best capabilities, and taking pictures of the suffering is often intrusive to those being photographed. Try to remember that we are there to give; not to show others that we are giving.
