Become a Team Leader

Team Leading is an extremely rewarding hands-on experience that involves guiding diverse groups of volunteers in completing various farm activities.  Volunteer Team Leaders are the backbone of Community Harvest Project’s success story.  Our Team Leaders work with CHP Field Staff and Interns to represent the organization and ensure a positive experience for the over 7,500 volunteers that work with us.

What does team leading involve?

A great Volunteer Team Leader is interested in helping to provide access to fresh produce for the hunger relief network in Worcester County. They have a friendly and engaging personality, and the desire to lead small groups of 6 to 30 volunteers in hands-on farm activities. Assisting and leading diverse groups of volunteers from pre-K to senior citizens in farm activities in various types of weather sounds like an exciting challenge. They also want to join a group of Volunteer Team Leaders engaged in presenting a world class volunteer experience. Ready to get involved? Email volunteer@community-harvest.org.
