There is no cost for housing. Your group is responsible for travel costs and meals. World Renew DRS does not charge for coordinating mission trips.
Skill Level Requirement
No particular skills are required, but it is highly preferable for each group to have at least one skilled person who can take the lead on group projects. There will be a World Renew DRS facilitator on site who will coordinate work projects that align with your skills.
Tools and Materials
There will be a fully equipped World Renew DRS Tool Trailer, as well as a DRS pickup truck on site in Tarboro to support the work at this Facilitated Sit.
