What makes you a good M/LTV?

If you are...

- organised, responsible and well-prepared.
- emotionally stable and have a good sense of humour.
- open-minded, adaptable and ready to adjust to a different culture.
- self-reliant and capable of improvisation when needed.
- patient, flexible and able to work in an international team.
- willing to learn about other cultures and lifestyles.
- committed to sharing your knowledge and skills.

...you will be a great M/LTV...but if you only fulfil some and not all the above criteria, you should still apply, as it is never too late to learn!

Quote of the day

« I had not appreciated that so few people come out in the East Asian countries that my telling them was something extraordinary. This was also the most interesting aspect of the workcamp in terms of trying to expand the awareness of other ways of living, and there was never any hostility or problems because of it. »

David H. from Surrey
