Requirements & Deadlines

All team members have reviewed and committed to meeting the fundraising and training requirements necessary to complete their event. All fundraising will be processed through their individual fundraising page which can be accessed using the respective link above. All educational and training requirements will live in each team member’s Neo account. Neo is an online learning management system (LMS) that will allow team members to learn about their trip, the organization, and some of the impact they will have this summer. There will also be various administrative items that will need to be submitted by each team member on this platform. A full list of assignments and timelines can be viewed for each event below…





We do not expect team members to do this alone as it is a team effort. This team includes the team member, family members, and our staff. We are dedicated to providing the best overall experience and support possible, but we can only do so much. Here is a list of additional resources available for team members to be safe and successful in their preparations.
