CDI Volunteer Recruitment 2018/19 - Application Form
This form is an application to join one of Cambridge Development Initiative's four project teams on our 2 month summer trip to Tanzania. The trip will take place between mid-July to mid-September. Volunteers are expected to be available for the entirety of this 2 month period.

We will be holding group interviews on the 29th and 30th of January, please keep these days as free as possible. Individual interviews will then be held the week beginning the 4th of February.

During the end of Lent term, volunteers will be expected to attend our compulsory training sessions, as well as meet with their project teams.

Each volunteer is asked to make a £700 contribution to cover their flights, accommodation, and volunteer permit. Please note that the vast majority of volunteers last year received this sum, or greater, from various college travel bursary schemes. We will send a complete list of travel grant opportunities after the first training session.

If you foresee that these financial requirements may cause you difficulties, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

The deadline for applications is 12pm, Thursday 24th January. Applications and CVs received after this time will not be accepted.
