No previous experience is required but you will usually need to be aged 18+. Some organisations might want a commitment of 1 - 3 months but there are alternative shorter options. On arrival you will be given full training and an orientation meeting other staff and coordinators, 



Home stays are available which is our top recommendation for cultural immersion but b&b, hostel, hotel and other shared accommodation is available.
