**If you wish to purchase trip cancellation insurance, you will need to do so at the time of your first deposit. Tesoro Project recommends that trip participants consider purchasing an individual trip cancellation policy at the time of the initial deposit, which would cover the trip costs (plan dependent) should someone have to back out of the trip for an unexpected emergency. Many plans can be found online, but one plan that offers trip cancellation insurance for any reason can be found at www.sevencorners.com. It will be your responsibility to know what plan you are purchasing and understand how it works**

Volunteering to participate in this trip has the following conditions:

  • The organization that we serve with is called Potter’s House Association International. Please take a moment to view the following website: www.pottershouse.org.gt to get an understanding of the organization that we have been partnering with for the past 8 years. It is very important to respect their mission, values and goals while serving alongside during our week in Guatemala.

  • There will be 3-4 sessions for group training prior to departure that will prepare a    student/clinician for conditions that will be encountered while on the service trip. It is  expected that if you are accepted on this service trip that you will participate in this training for your safety and for promoting group dynamics. Session dates will be determined by the trip coordinator and be delivered in a virtual format until further notice.

  • Non-Refundable Deposit. Tesoro Project incurs significant non-refundable expenses on your behalf prior to the trip, including airfare and accommodations. The $1500 deposit required to secure your place on the trip is used to cover those expenses, and therefore these deposits are non-refundable. Your signature on this application is your acknowledgement and agreement that the $1500 deposit for this trip is non-refundable.​ Therefore, Tesoro Project strongly recommends you purchase a trip cancellation insurance policy.
