There is a $25.00 non-refundable fee due with your application that will go towards your trip costs.
Please note: Due to high demand and the planning that goes into making sure health professions students are matched with clinicians we require applications to be submitted approximately 8 months in advance. If a trip is not full, we will continue to accept applications until It is full. This timing between your acceptance on the trip and the actual trip allows for you to participate in fundraising efforts and our pre-departure training.
After we receive your signed application, we will schedule you to complete a video interview with your assigned trip leader via face to face Skype, Facetime, Facebook video, or WhatsApp video. This will assess your fit with TP and what volunteer level you will be matched with.
(all payments must be received at least 8 weeks prior to departure).
During the process of your interview, we will be confirming availability of your requested trip dates and our program needs. Upon successful completion of your interview, you’ll receive an acceptance email from us with instructions and dates for trip payments.
Prior to your departure, you will be required to participate in several face to face/skype sessions with your team to best prepare you for your experience. This will involve details regarding our procedures, packing lists, simulation for in the field experience, and trip preparations. We want to make sure the experience is successful and that you represent TP and the patients we will be treating in the best way.
Have an unforgettable experience volunteering while making a lasting impact in the TESOROS of Guatemala.
