What do Team Members do on missions?

Mike Lee

Mike Lee, a native of Chicago, graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a degree in Creative Writing. At LMU, Mike developed international and domestic volunteer trips and served as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Student Veterans Organization. Mike’s professional background is in advertising and marketing, and has experience in executing large print and digital campaigns for non-profit and tourism clients. He lives in Los Angeles where he thinks a lot about dogs, bourbon, and the Chicago Bears.

Domestically, Team Rubicon’s operations focus on expedient home and infrastructure repair, flood recovery, and debris management, as well as post-disaster damage assessments (PDDA’s). In addition to a direct response role, TR has also taken on command and control responsibilities in support of local Emergency Operations Centers and large-scale spontaneous volunteer management.

Internationally, Team Rubicon’s volunteers have performed everything from medical relief and training; water and sanitary health (WASH) operations; and refugee camp management.

Each disaster is its own unique situation, and TR will always tailor its response in order to make the largest impact possible. While many of our operations address gaps in aid during emergent disasters, Team Rubicon will also deploy teams in proactive settings, which can be planned months in advance. Check out the mission map for more information on what Team Rubicon is capable of.
