At Mobilize, we deploy workers in pods – these groups spend the season working and living together. Known as podmates within the program, workers are assigned roommates by us during the orientation process and right before a deployment. We match roommates by program profiles that are completed by new workers during the onboarding stage. The podmates spend the season working, exploring and living together. They share supplied accommodations that include a sleeping space, living space, kitchen area, and bathroom.
