All international and national travel costs to initially get to the site are the responsibility of the applicant. We require a US$200 security deposit to cover any damage you may cause to your volunteer living accommodations. You will receive this back at the end of your Apprenticeship, minus the cost of any damage you may have caused exceeding normal wear and tear. Once on site, accommodation, daily transport, and utilities are provided. All team members buy and prepare their own food, for this we recommend you budget for at least US$40 per week, or more if you like luxuries. Comprehensive insurance cover for the entire stay is a must and should be arranged and paid for by the applicant. Doing a visa renewal trip (every 90 days) is also the applicant's own responsibility. The most cost-effective option is going to Nicaragua via bus for a long weekend, which your manager can help schedule.

Other information:
We are unable to accommodate couples in our Apprenticeship.
