Volunteer Team Leader Training
Community Harvest Project will be hosting a training at our orchard in Harvard (115 Prospect Hill Road, Harvard) on August 29th from 9:00 AM to Noon. We are looking to engage volunteers to assist us in leading the volunteer groups that will be visiting the farm from September 1st to October 15th. Team Leading is an extremely rewarding hands-on experience that involves guiding diverse groups of volunteers in completing various farm activities. Volunteer Team Leaders are the backbone of Community Harvest Project’s success story. Our Team Leaders work with CHP Field Staff and Interns to represent the organization and ensure a positive experience for the over 10,000 volunteers that work with us annually. At the Harvard orchard we need Team Leaders to help coordinate and direct the work of small groups of volunteers in picking, sorting and packaging apples for donation to hunger relief organizations throughout Central and Eastern Massachusetts....
