How to apply & the Selection process

To join the team, you must apply to the program, completing the application form you will find below. The more detail you can provide about your experience and motivation, the better for our staff to check if your profile matches what we are looking for.

Be honest about yourself! We will choose volunteers based on their general profile, skills, and past experiences. Remember, volunteers will be living for a month in a very rudimentary community and because of that we need to make sure you are aligned with our values!

After we receive your application, we will review it, and send you feedback within 48 hours, of whether or not you have been successful.

If you are selected, you will have 5 days to send us the agreement and disclaimer, signed (virtually) and make the deposit of USD300 online. After that, you will receive your final confirmation in maximum three days and get prepared for the experience of a lifetime!

The other USD900 will be paid in cash when you meet our staff in Panama. At this time, you will also sign the Volunteer Agreement and Disclaimer in person. If you are staying for one or two weeks, you should make the same deposit and pay the other part in person, to our staff.
