You need only commit to participate for the entire project time span--no dues, no required advance orientation meetings, and no skills assumed. About half of the volunteers of any given PMD project (which involve 12-25 people total) are first-time PMD volunteers, so no need to worry about cliques or not feeling included.
In order to participate, you must register yourself (not freinds, spouses, or children--each individual must register him/her-self) online using the unique zoomernag link listed under HOW in the details for each project. If you cannot register using a desk- or lap-top computer, please call PMD at (*82)1-781-963-0373 for assistance.
After you register online, you will see a confirmation screen and receive a confirmation email message. Then a few days before the project you will be emailed PDF information about what to expect, what to bring, and how to get there (by car and by public transportation).
