There are two ways! Click on Outreach Trips on the menu above, and then click either “Upcoming Trips” to see a page listing ALL upcoming Outreach Trips or click “Trips” and then select a campus to see which Outreach Trip is being run in conjunction with that SOS Chapter.
Once you’ve read all the information about the Trip, you’ll hit the Apply button. In order to apply for a trip, you have to create a quick account with your name and email. If you’re a SOS volunteer or have purchased an Exam Aid Product, you’ve already got one!
If you’re a new account user, once you’ve created your account you will hit Trips and Apply once again, and then be taken to the Application!
Your deposit covers all the support you receive from SOS from the first time you visited our website, to once you’ve completed your Outreach Trip and join our Alumni Network! This fees covers everything from digital marketing, 24/7 on call support, pre-departure training, program development, monitoring and evaluation of projects, and much more.
Deposits are non refundable.
In order to gain the most out of the experience, we discourage constant contact with home, as it is a barrier to full immersion in the local community and culture.
All SOS volunteers must consult a travel doctor to get information on vaccines. Canadian passport holders do not need any vaccinations for legal entry into our host countries.
Depending on the amount of students signed up for your Outreach Trip, SOS will either reserve a block of seats on a specific itinerary for your group, or you’ll be able to choose your own flight!
If you’re able to choose your own flight, SOS will share Flight Parameters with you via email. Flight Parameters determine what time you must arrive at the airport of your host country and what time can you can depart the same airport on your way home. Since volunteers will be arriving from different locations, we need everyone to arrive by a certain time.
Your NGO Trip Leader will pick you up at the airport and drop you off at the airport!
