Carter Work Project Application

Please read the following information before completing the application form at the bottom of the page.

Participants under the age of 18
Depending on local laws and program policy, some host programs may not accept minors or may limit the type of work performed by minors. The criteria listed in the policy apply to all potential Global Village participants under the age of 18. These guidelines apply internationally and domestically, unless otherwise specified. Guidelines include considerations for minors, guardians and GV team leaders.

Health and safety

  • Work assignments normally involve strenuous physical activity―sometimes at high altitudes. Team members must be in good physical health in order go join a Global Village work team on a trip.
  • International travel always contains some degree of danger. All Global Village team members participate at their own risk.

Passports

  • International trips: You will need a current passport that is valid for six months beyond your travel dates.
  • A note about passport processing times: To ensure you receive your passport by the date of your Global Village trip departure, allow approximately 20 weeks for passport applications (both new and renewal). Find more information regarding passport-processing times, visit the U.S. Department of State’s Application Processing Times.
