Team Leader

Intro - Step 1 of 8

We are so pleased that you have made plans to lead a team to Hospital Socorro de lo Alto.

The level of responsibility of leading a mission team requires a person who understands people and purpose, as well as understanding and insight into the overall situation into which you are leading a team.

In these times, there are on-going changes and everyone must remain flexible and in communication with the Health Caring Services administration staff, as we will be with you.

THANK YOU for everything you do and please contact us with any needs you have.

Important Next Steps:

1) Submit the “Team Leader Commitment Form” (TLCF) below. This form provides the HCS Administration and the Hospital with the necessary information to support you in your leadership role.

If you do not have all the specific information to complete this form, do not submit it. Contact HCS administration (Jill) and discuss options.

If, after you have submitted this form any information changes, it is important that you let the administration staff know immediately. You will receive a Team Leader Information file with your team due dates and required leadership responsibilities and the Team Leader Manual when your Team Leader Commitment Form is received. You will also receive the Team Member Information file and the Team Member Manual that the team leader needs to pass along to teach team member when they are recruited.

2) Read the Team Leader and the Team Member Manuals linked here. As the team leader, you are responsible for the information contained in the Team Leader Manual AND the Team Member Manual, as well as making sure every team member has access to and is encouraged to read the Team Member Manual. If you are not administrating the team yourself, make sure your team administrator receives a copy of both manuals as well. Team Leader Manual (Word Document) // Team Member Manual (Word Document)

3) As team leader it is your responsibility to confirm with all team members before submission that their documents follow the stated guidelines on the application and that the application and documents are submitted and payment is made no later than the team closing date.

No person will be considered a team member until their application and required documents and payment are submitted by the due date. There will no exceptions, due to the fact the hospital must submit your team information to proper Honduras officials within a specified time span to acquire the necessary permission to work in Honduras.

Itineraries and Travel Insurance policies are due at least 4 weeks before the team departure date.

You will receive a detailed information sheet with your team due dates and required documents when your commitment form is received.

4) Contact HCS Administration with any questions – [email protected].

Blessings and thank you for serving in our beloved Honduras, the HCS administrative team
