- Recruiting and training new Pow! group members.
Potential Pow! members DO NOT have to be health-knowledgeable to join! We'll teach you all you need to know. All group members are volunteers; most are undergrads at the UD. Both men and women participate in our group, and we make it our practice to welcome and accept anyone who has the basic skills and, most importantly, the desire to perform the functions of the group. Preference in selection is given to individuals who can participate in the entire training as well as those who have significant time to dedicate to fulfilling the mission of the group.
For more information about the general expectations of POW! members and weekly functioning of the group, read our Expectations page.
