Team Captains

Team Captains Lead the Way

Every Out Teach “Big Dig” project is designed to give volunteers an opportunity to build both muscles and skills while they work to build a wonderful new Outdoor Learning Lab for deserving kids.  Thank you for agreeing to be one of our Team Captains!  Even if you’ve never lifted a hammer or planted a tree, we’ll make sure you have everything you need to do a great job and have fun with your teammates.  Here, you’ll find information on what to expect during the Big Dig, as well as printable project sheets so you can arrive prepared to make a difference.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

With some preparation, a quick training, and an attractive bright green vest, you’ll be ready to lead your team and get the project done.  Our volunteers always do a great job creating an amazing Outdoor Learning Lab that will last for years to come!  We’ve got everything laid out and ready for you to pitch in and make a big difference during your Big Dig!
