Part 2.1: What Is a Self-Directed Volunteer Team?
A Self Directed Volunteer Team (SDV Team) is a multi-skilled group of volunteers who share responsibilities for addressing a challenge or opportunity in their community that they care about.

Through time, the team is empowered to take full responsibility for its own functioning and for results. Watch our two-minute video.
