The application process
- Get in touch
Start the application process by filling out the quick form below! This will give us a good idea of what your interests are and how we can help you best in your application process. If you are still unsure about applying, this would be a good time for us to answer any questions you have.
Once we’ve answered your questions and you’re ready to apply, we will send you the link to the online application forms.
- Recent photograph
Please send a recent photo of yourself with your application form.
- Registration fee
After sending your application form, please make your non-refundable registration fee payment of 50 €, either by bank transfer or PayPal (the bank details are on the application form).
If you are not a European citizen (Schengen Zone), you will need a visa. Processing the visa documents costs 50 €, so if you need a visa, please pay 100 € to cover the visa and the registration cost.
Please send the confidential reference form to your pastor or spiritual leader. Ask them to send it directly to us at the email address specified on the form.
- Confidential medical certificate
Please send us the certificate signed and stamped by your doctor.
- Copy of health insurance and passport
Please scan and email us a copy of your health insurance and any health insurance card you may have. In addition, send us a copy of the main page of your passport (the one with the data and photo), as we will need this to process your visa.
- Background check to work with minors
We ask all our students and volunteers to obtain this certificate (background check) since we often organize activities with minors on our bases and during our events. If you are not resident in Spain you will need, in addition to the Spanish certificate, a certificate from your country of origin. You can apply for the free Spanish certificate online at the Spanish Ministry of Justice.
- Quick call
Once we have your application and references, we will set up a quick video call with you to get to know you better and answer any questions you may have.
