HOW DO I APPLY FOR A PLACE?
If you would like to go ahead to the next stage and apply for a place, all you need to do is complete our application form in the How to Apply section of our website.
There is no commitment by making an application, and when we receive your application we will contact you and provide further information about the project. We would also be very happy to give you a call to tell you more - just let us know your telephone number and when is a good time to reach you, or you can call us on 0974.644 134 (+84 974 644 134 if outside the Vietnam). Alternatively you can email us with any questions and we can answer them.

ARE THERE ANY AGE LIMITS?

WHEN IS BEST TO APPLY?
As long as we have availability, you can apply at any time but we do recommend applying sooner rather than later. In general it's helpful to apply at least a month in advance so that there is time to make the preparations, but we can also deal with last minute applications.

CAN I CONTACT AN EX-VOLUNTEER?

CAN I MEET THE CVTD TEAM?
Yes, we love to have volunteers come and see us at our offices in Ha Noi, just let us know when you want to come and we can make sure we have some biscuits ready!
