Age Requirement: You can apply on your own if you are 18 years or over at the start of the program. For participants who are 15-17 years old at the start of the program, it is possible to enroll if the legal guardian gives permission and signs our waiver form to waive our liability.

Language Requirement: You must be able to speak English.

Cooperation and Adaptability: You should be able to work well with others, including people who are quite different from yourself. You should be able to adapt to foreign environments and new cultures. International volunteers and interns need to be cooperative, flexible, and respectful. You need to respect the local culture and local ways of living. The more interest you show to the local coworkers and host family, the more interest they usually show in you and your learning. The success of doing a project abroad also depends on you.

Medical placement volunteers must have relevant medical training and certification.
