Roommate Preferences
Because the number of rooms that Sandals donates to our program are limited, we always place 3 persons to a room on our project. We make exceptions for couples, family members or friends who are willing to pay extra to secure a private room (1 or 2 persons only) on a space available basis. Volunteers are placed with people they choose as roommates, whenever possible. If you do not have 2 roommates in advance, no problem! We will place you with same gender volunteers in a way that best matches you as possible. We ask everyone to be flexible in the spirit of the project. By participating, you are accepting the possibility that we may not be able to meet your roommate preferences.
Do you have 1 or 2 other roommates confirmed yet?
This means that you have talked to them and you all agree on the same thing.
