Noah’s Wish has a Volunteer In-Field Training, a training program that equips participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to respond to disaster relief for animals. It is unique in that it provides a simulation of the actual mobilization involved during emergencies in a realistic temporary shelter. After a participant completes the training, he will become a full-fledged volunteer for Noah’s Wish, helping accomplish the mission of taking care of animals during disasters.
The Volunteer In-Field Training is an extensive program that includes field-tested and practical steps in disaster risk and preparedness. It includes topics like:
- Orienting volunteers with comprehensive knowledge involved in disaster relief operations
- Educating volunteers on the importance of safety as the priority
- Equipping volunteers with the required skills to carry out disaster relief work
- Reminding volunteers Noah’s Wish mission at all times
- Explaining to volunteers how people value their animals
A volunteer then receives a Volunteer Handbook divided into several sections outlining information, guidelines, forms, procedures, and other vital information required to carry out the tasks required of a Noah’s Wish volunteer.
Trainers and coordinators during the intensive training are guaranteed experts in their field with ample experience in the area of disaster management. From time to time, guests with substantial information and skills that they can impart to volunteers are also invited.
Registration fee for the training is $150 for first time volunteers, while $90 for returning volunteers. A referral bonus of $10 will be deducted from the registration fee when you refer other people to join the In-Field Training.
Upon training, volunteers are expected to bring their own provisions and the necessary equipment including, but not limited to uniform, sleeping essentials, first aid kit, and survival necessities.
Upon registration, you will be provided with an extensive list of things to bring, including your own provision. This is in keeping with the training. No personal pets are allowed on the training unless otherwise specified.
