Convoy of Hope began serving in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria brought devastation in 2017. Following the initial relief efforts through Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team, Field Teams began rehabilitation efforts — helping communities and churches work toward long-term sustainability.
While certain rehabilitation efforts continue, Convoy of Hope is also moving toward developmentally focused work, such as Women’s Empowerment and Girls’ Empowerment.
Field Teams continues to walk forward with local people and church leaders to fight against poverty and hopelessness. Each opportunity will be somewhat different depending on the team and the current needs on the ground.
Field Teams assists with a wide variety of projects, including construction, community development, and relational ministry to both under-resourced and marginalized community members.
NOTE: Previously mentioned is the range of funds in connection with project funds for the entire trip. Please know that raising more funds will allow for greater possibilities.

Every participant must meet the following criteria:

  • 16-years-old or older for international trips and 13-years-old or older for U.S.-based trips. Certain trips, noted in the description, are only open to those 18+.
  • In good health.
  • Consent to and pass a background check.

Currently, we are not able to accommodate individuals who are not connected with a team.

Field Teams exist to connect partners with opportunities to serve  people through Convoy of Hope. Field Teams consist of people from churches, universities, and other groups or organizations.

Field Teams are open to those who are 16-years-old and older for international travel (certain trips require 18+) and 13-years-old and older for U.S.-based trips. It should be noted that many of our group opportunities include construction-oriented work. Please look closely to see the type of work required of each opportunity, and keep this in mind when deciding on the team members from your group.

Field Teams help Convoy of Hope accomplish our goals around the world. Because of this, different teams may serve through different projects and opportunities. Currently, most of our teams will help with construction projects that serve our Children’s Feeding initiative. Additionally, most teams will spend time with children and others who are served through Convoy of Hope.

We don’t list every possible date for your teams to serve as there are many changing factors, and that list would be near impossible to keep for each place of service. In every place, however, there are multiple windows of opportunity throughout the entire year, except for a break around Christmas. Please let us know via email or your application of 2 or 3 windows of time (a Saturday-Saturday works best in the Western Hemisphere), and a place(s) that interests you, and we will work to find a time that works for both you and the field.
