Let us know!
Can you tell me more about what I would be doing if I volunteered for a Global STEM Squad?
I am interested in growing my STEM skills. How can Global STEM Squads help me?
How is Global STEM Squads different from other volunteer programs I’ve heard about?
Is there a minimum or maximum number of volunteers for groups?
Where do the funds I raise go?
STEM Squads volunteers do not pay to volunteer with Squads Abroad. Instead, volunteers fundraise to support Squads Abroad’s Holistic Model. Once a volunteer meets a set Donation Goal, they are eligible to join us on-the-ground to see their fundraising efforts put into action by participating in a Global STEM Squad.
When a volunteer participates in a STEM Squad, the volunteer’s ground transportation, food, lodging, and emergency insurance are all covered. The funding that the volunteer raised also supports all the necessary costs for program implementation, such as equipment, local engineers, translators, and support staff.
