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 would recommend participating in a workcamp, especially with VAP, who ensured that I found a project to suit me and provided essential training for me in preparation for my trip. Being part of a workcamp really is a life-changing experience, oh, and it looks great on your CV! »
