If you've ever watched a natural disaster unfold on the news and wanted to make an immediate, hands-on impact, this may be the session for you!
TeamRubiconUSA.org is a volunteer, non-profit disaster response organization, providing immediate, hands-on assistance, helping the vulnerable on what may be the very worst day of their lives Efforts are focused on helping communities and individuals that are traditionally underserved and socially vulnerable, free of charge to those served.
One of Team Rubicon's cultural principles is "Everyone has a Role - Know It". We're not all young, strong, and able-bodied; and we don’t all run chainsaws! Everyone truly does have a role, whether deployed in the field on the scene of a recent disaster or participating and supporting events closer to home. All are welcome to join and get involved.
This session will cover Team Rubicon's history, structure, recent responses, and opportunities to get involved. If you are built to serve, and want to help others after disasters strike, come learn about Team Rubicon!
