  • TF will coordinate all communication with the mission site before and after the trip.
  • Volunteers should be given plenty of time, a minimum of one week (7 Days), by TF to plan and make personal arrangements in preparation for an upcoming mission.

  • The volunteer will be provided with an international calling card or cell phone, computer, and a credit card to use during the mission trip.

The selected volunteer(s) is expected to adhere to the Code of Conduct at all times when performing a mission for TF. Attitude and manners will reflect directly upon TF. Lewd and unprofessional behavior will not be tolerated and may result in an immediate termination. Review Volunteer Code of Conduct Form.
  • Volunteer must obtain all required immunizations and necessary medication for the trip (receipts may be submitted to TF for reimbursement).

These documents will be used in quarterly meetings with the Board to provide an accurate history and overall performance of TF to include both accomplishments and failures.
  • TF will provide the volunteer with mission site and country information; however, the volunteer should read as much as possible about the location of the mission trip.
  • Any recreational travel a volunteer wishes to undertake before or after the trip must be approved by TF and will be at the expense of the volunteer.
