What are the requirements to be a crew leader? To be a crew leader you must be willing and able to volunteer regularly, at least two times a month. You must be willing to teach and lead others as well as to learn.

What does it mean to be a crew leader? What are the crew leader's roles and responsibilities? As a crew leader, you are assigned one or more tasks to complete for the day.
