Global Village trip leader resources

As a Global Village team leader, you’ll manage a holistic experience for your team. Your impact is much more than what you accomplish on the build site, your team’s funds invest in the community you’ll be serving in and your volunteers will return home inspired to live differently. 

You don’t just help Habitat improve the world – you help your teams reflect and reimagine themselves. Whether you are taking out your first team or your 40th, we’ve gathered resources to help you answer volunteers’ questions and plan a life-changing trip.
