New Workday Policy!
We've implemented a new workday policy to ensure that we get the most people involved in our workdays as possible.
Starting this semester, when you sign up for a workday, you will recieve an email with details about the day by THURSDAY NIGHT.
We ask that you please respond to the email either confirming that you will be attending, or letting us know if you won't be able to make it BY 2PM FRIDAY
so that we can fill in habitaters on our Wait List wherever needed!
If you have signed up for a workday, you should recieve an email about when
and where you will meet up on Saturday morning to head to the worksite. If you're interested in
participating in the workdays listed here, or are at least 21 years old and would like to drive to any workday,
contact Tyler Chanas at email@example.com
