Service projects provide opportunities for members to stay engaged, trained, and qualified outside of operational deployments.Service projects can vary in size and variety- sometimes they involve mucking out houses, removing large debris from homes with heavy equipment participating in local disaster mitigation exercises, or partnering with the local American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars to help paint a veteran’s home. In short, service projects help TR members stay engaged with their local communities while simultaneously honing their skills to prepare them for the next disaster relief deployment.
Service projects typically last one or two days and are scheduled for weekends. Since we all lead pretty hectic lives, we’re not always available to take the time away from our families or jobs to deploy on a disaster relief operation. Service projects provide all of our members an opportunity to meet other members in their area and become active in the Team Rubicon community.
