North South Preparation Day June 2016
The preparation day will be run at our office in Portslade, very close to Brighton.
Concordia office - Portslade, near Brighton
You can book a place on the preparation day when applying for a North South Project in Africa, Asia and Latin America and in this case the cost of the preparation day is included in the registration fee for the project.
If you book a place on the North South preparation day only without applying for a volunteer project, the participation fee is 20 pounds.
All volunteers applying for a project in Latin America, Asia and Africa must attend a preparation day before departure. This is to ensure that you are sufficiently prepared, both for travelling in the South and for the conditions on our projects.
The event will explore issues such as health and safety, cultural awareness, relations between the North and South, living conditions and development. There will also be the opportunity to talk to people who have been to the countries involved in the past.
The preparation day is also a good chance for all those who want to know more about the North South Programme but still have not decided where to go or what project to choose. It is possible to apply for the preparation day only, with the intention of attending this event to decide on the right project for you.
Fee: The fee for the preparation is 20 pounds and covers the hiring of the venue as well as refreshments, teas and coffees for the day.
