How We Get Our Local Workers


Look for people oriented around surving others in churches and value aligned organizations. These are lifestyle driven people that see a deeper purpose in helping their community.


3x check our employees:

  1. Interview (phone + in-person)
  2. Background check
  3. Reference check

Pair everyone with our foreman mentors that have an extensive experience in odd jobs and growing our workers as individuals.

Commitment to Our Employees

As our Local Workers learn skills that will help them professionally, they are invited to our Full Life Group to develop in different areas of life along with their work.

Meet Some of Our Local Workers

“When I came home from college I was stoked to find Surv, an organization that also has a heart to serve. My favorite part of the job is building real relationships with neighbors in my community. I also love the community events that allow me to give back to those in need in my hometown.”

Meet Lexi, Local Worker
“I loved being a Local Worker so much that I now launch new communities. This is an incredible experience because it allows me to open the doors for people in the area to find their purpose in life; while giving Local Workers a chance to connect with and build a stronger community through service.”
Meet Cody, Launch Associate
“I lost my job during COVID, but then I heard of this surfer-ran odd job startup coming to my city and I knew I had to hop on board. Surv has helped me develop skills in so many areas, all while still being able to enjoy things I’m passionate about like the outdoors, craft beer, and music.”
