Eligibility and Requirements for Community Partnership Programs
Global citizens of all ages are welcome on Xperitas Community Partnership Programs. Participants are invited by our community partners to work on a community led project.
There is no maximum age – we just ask for each person, no matter the age, to consider the working and living conditions of the community and program. If you have significant physical limitations, we encourage you to talk about your situation with Xperitas staff.
For families with children under 8, please consult Xperitas staff to determine whether arrangements can be made. Certain sites are more conducive to hosting children than others.
Xperitas does not require any specific skills of its Community Partnership Program participants. We do, however, look for participants who are culturally sensitive, flexible, optimistic, willing to both share and learn, work well in a team setting and above all, are open to new experiences. Participants must complete the online application before being confirmed on a program and sign a Code of Conduct prior to departure.
