Team Rubicon is a veteran-led humanitarian organization that serves global communities before, during, and after disasters and crises. Founded in 2010 with the expressed goal of quickly responding to large-scale disasters, Team Rubicon has deployed thousands of volunteers across the United States and world to provide relief to communities in need. When disaster strikes, we work hard to help the most vulnerable in need. By working with or alongside local agencies and governments, Team Rubicon seeks to be of the utmost service to those in need.

Roughly 70% of Team Rubicon volunteers are military veterans. Many of the skills gained in the military - things like emergency medicine, small-unit leadership, logistics, experience in austere environments - translate well to disaster response. Military service does not define a Team Rubicon member, nor is it required. Many of our volunteers are pulled from the civil service sector. Firefighters, medical professionals, law enforcement officers, teachers, and mental health providers are among the diverse careers held by TR volunteers.

The only prerequisite required for volunteering with Team Rubicon is a commitment to service. As a Greyshirt, you will be responsible for providing immediate and impactful aid to communities affected by disaster. If you are willing to raise your hand to help those in need, we’re ready to get you in a grey shirt.

Disaster relief requires a breadth of skill sets and experience. Team Rubicon offers various training tracks - from chainsaw operation to heavy equipment to disaster technology - to our members. If you consider yourself "unskilled" don’t worry, we’ll train you up.

WHY WE SERVE

Disasters can happen anywhere at any time. Team Rubicon exists to provide the greatest service and impact to survivors and communities in need, no matter where. Simply put, we help people on their worst days.

Team Rubicon is built to serve.

WHAT ARE YOU BUILT FOR?

IF YOU'RE READY TO HELP THOSE IN NEED, THERE'S A GREY SHIRT WITH YOUR NAME ON IT.
