The finer details:
Our basic trip package includes food, accommodation, ground transportation, a $500 contribution to the in-country partner and the support of the DWC team at home and your destination.
Volunteer projects usually involve some physical activity, sometimes at high altitudes. Participants should be in good physical health to join a team but we don’t turn anyone away.
International travel always has some level of danger. All team members participate at their own risk. Prior to departure you will be asked to fill out a personal health form and submit a liability waiver. Participants under the age of 19 must have a parent or guardian fill out a separate liability waiver well before departure.
You will need a current passport valid for six months past your travel dates. To ensure you get your passport well ahead of your departure date, allow 20 weeks for your passport application to be processed (new or renewal).
If you have other questions or want more information before registering, contact us at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to provide answers.
