Leadership Volunteer Needs

Learn more about Leadership Volunteers, what they do, and how to become one.

Canadians wishing to serve in the U.S. must book at least 3 weeks prior to their service term to allow time for border entry paperwork to be completed. Unfortunately, at this time Canadian border-crossing restrictions prohibit U.S. volunteers from serving with MDS in Canada.

Red Lake, MN

Description: A tornado struck the community of Red Lake on Monday, July 26, 2021. This included the Red Lake and Redby areas on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, causing thousands of dollars in damages to buildings, motor vehicles and other structures and property. They experienced golf-ball sized hail and damaging winds that destroyed homes and vehicles. 78 homes were heavily damaged. There was no disaster declaration from FEMA, leaving the community on their own to secure funds for repairs and volunteers to make repairs.

WV Bridges

Description: Flood events in West Virginia have increased over the past 10 years washing out hundreds of private stream crossings (bridges) across the state. Homeowners who cross streams to get to their homes are either driving through the stream bed or parking on the other side of the stream and walking across a temporary walkway. Because these are private structures, the government cannot help directly, so the only potential assistance is voluntary organizations like MDS. Since 2015 MDS has built nearly 150 private bridges with many more to go.
