Volunteering Interview | Volunteer Program Application Form


This form will help us set up your volunteer projects...

Please note: this form is only required if you plan to Volunteer. All applicants must also complete our Registration Form and if you're planning on having Spanish Classes, you're also required to submit your Online Placement Test (only if you know Spanish, even a little bit).

We would like to start by thanking you for the work that you're about to embark on in Panama City, Boquete and/or Bocas del Toro, Panama. We appreciate that you're giving so much with your contribution of skills, time, talents and funds to participate in the program.

We work diligently to get you placed in the most appropriate volunteer position to ensure your success in the program. In order to do that, the more information we have on your past work and volunteer experience will be greatly helpful, along with information on things you're passionate about, hobbies and interests you may have, and any educational background information.

While we do everything we can to assign volunteers to the type of placement they are looking for we do not guarantee that volunteers will always get their first preference. At times it is necessary that placements are assigned based on where the need is the greatest and your acceptance to serve where needed is greatly appreciated.

Space available in certain projects is limited and if your schedule is limited to less than two weeks, program placements tend to be more limited. The amount of hours to volunteer on some projects is fixed, hence, if you would like to volunteer for a certain amount of hours per week you might be limited in the projects available and/or might be required to work on several projects. Volunteers can work beyond their commitment. It is vital that you're flexible and willing to adapt to situations as they arise.
