We love our volunteers!

In and out of disaster response, Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) serves those in need. With the help of volunteers working alongside our efforts (Community Volunteer or ADRN Volunteer), survivors and those in crisis are able to receive relief through the compassion at the heart of EVERY volunteer serving within our organization.


Become a Community Volunteer

Anyone from the community is welcome to sign up as a Community Volunteer at any time, in or out of disaster response, without joining our network. In a disaster, Community Volunteers who share our compassion to help those in crisis are essential to the response impact we have in meeting survivor needs quickly and efficiently.

Individuals, businesses, corporations, groups, or organizations can sign up as Community Volunteers in areas like clean-up, donation management, and warehouse inventory. Everyone has a role when it comes to serving communities in a time of need.

Become an ADRN Yellow Shirt Volunteer (Badged, Church Network Volunteers)

ADRN offers a complete range of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual trainings designed to equip the church to walk out the commission of Jesus Christ and meet the needs of people who have experienced disaster-related trauma. Each of our trained church network volunteers find their niche and level of participation within our organization through various core teams, training pathways, and leadership roles.

We take several steps to ensure all of our church network volunteers meet local agency, government, and city requirements. Our partnership with these organizations gets us "behind the yellow tape" and allows us to do what we do best—serve others in times of disaster.

I AM Ready™ Basic Training & Orientation

I AM Ready™ Basic Training & Orientation is for anyone who wants to become an official ADRN badged volunteer. By becoming a badged Volunteer, you will represent ADRN’s Network of Greater Austin Churches to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual aid to families or individuals impacted by crisis or disaster. IARBT is required of every new volunteer who wants to join the ADRN network. This 3-hour class will give you an introduction to ADRN and the training we provide, a volunteer roadmap for training and service, badging/credentials, how emergency response works in Greater Austin, individual/family preparedness, and more. This training serves as a prerequisite for most courses offered by ADRN and must be completed prior to registering for additional training courses.

All ADRN volunteers are required to sign our Statement of Faith in order to become an official badged volunteer.  Volunteers who do not want to sign ADRN’s Statement of Faith can still volunteer as a Community Volunteer (see below).

Our I AM Ready™ Basic Training is available On Demand now.
