Returning Desert Aid Volunteer
Thank you for your interest in returning to volunteer with us in the desert! The following form is to help us organize incoming return volunteer requests. It may take us a week or two to get back to you with a response. Note that this form is for former volunteers who have spent at least 4 weeks with us out in the desert. For returners who have volunteered with us 1-3 weeks, we encourage you to reapply for an upcoming program, and mention on your application that you are a returning volunteer.

Would it be helpful to receive a travel stipend? We may be able to reimburse you for up to $200. Please note that we have a limited amount of money for travel stipend use, and that decisions about stipend allocation will be decided collectively. We would like to prioritize stipends for for BIPOC volunteers, volunteers who are fluent in Spanish, have medical skills, can stay for longer amounts of time, and for those who are interested in coming in times of year where we tend to have lower coverage, such as the summer.
For BIPOC return volunteers: would it be helpful to receive a stipend for facilitating? NMD may be able to provide a stipend from $50/day, up to $500/month. (Note that ideally, requests for the following month are due by the 15th of the month you would like to facilitate. The BIPOC working group will review your request at the monthly meeting and get back to you ASAP after that meeting. If you miss the “deadline” of the 15th, please still send in your interest on this form!! If there is still money available for that month we’ll do our best to get it to you)
