The key attributes sought in applicants are a concern for your fellow man (not students who are simply looking to fill up a resume with volunteer/international development experience); a hunger for self-growth (this is not designed to be a fun spring break); maturity; curiosity; openness to foreign cultures; willingness to step outside your comfort zone and an independent streak.

Applicants must be American citizens and 18-30 years old.
