Interns must purchase their own airfare to and from the island. Airfare is not covered by the internship fee.
Will I have time to explore the island?
Yes! We require a commitment of 4 days per week, to be determined by us after you arrive. These days may vary each week, but will not exceed in amount. We do however strongly encourage involvement in a local church of your choice.
