Do you want to help Lead on Project day?
Team Leads are The Project’s event staff. They are one of the most valuable pieces of this event, because it’s the Team Leads who are really in charge on event day! It’s a great opportunity for leadership experience, extra safety and facilitator training, and for a bigger piece of the action on Project day. A full training curriculum is provided for each Team Lead area, and all meals are provided on Project day. Applications for our second round of Team Lead positions are NOW OPEN!
