Volunteers needed for 2017 for 2 weeks or longer to help at the Nursery and Toddler House. We especially need some volunteers who can be on a waiting list so if people cancel, we will still have enough volunteers to come and do the work! 

Teams: Teams are needed for 2017! Teams can be two to fourteen people if you come together for a week.  GLA usually only accepts teams for two weeks each month, so the schedule fills up fast.  If you want to bring a team to GLA, please reserve a week quickly.  We also have openings any week for some small building teams (plumbers, electricians, carpenters, etc) that can stay at Fort Jacques and work. Teams usually come for one week.

From April 2017 through July 2017
