Global Village Leadership
Do You Know What it Takes?

Part 3 of the Kaitlyn Reper Story – Part 1, Part 2

Just as summer is coming to a close, so too are Kaitlyn Reper’s preparations for her Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to El Salvador in November as both a volunteer and a team leader.    The trip will be the culmination of effort that includes fundraising, team interviewing and selection, and training.

But take a few steps back, there is a lot of effort and qualification that happens just to get selected for this important role. So what does it take?  A team leader needs to be an ambassador for the program – understanding its purpose and the mission of the program as well as the mission of Habitat.  They must possess the skills and experience to be a competent leader and they must be certified in first aid and CPR.  A team leader must also have significant international travel experience including participation in one prior GV trip and they must have completed a two day training course.  Finally they have to be recommended by a GV team leader.  And that’s just to be able to submit an application.  They still have to go through an interview and be approved.
