$400 payment is due with your registration; payments are nonrefundable as they go towards airplane tickets which are non-refundable. The total cost of this trip is over $1000/person. Thanks to the generous support of donors, Pres House is able to subsidize a significant amount. If you are able to contribute more, we welcome you to give generously.
No special skills are required, however if you some Spanish language skills and/or have some basic knowledge of construction, those are helpful.
This BWAP trip has room for ten people on the team. If more than ten people would like to go, preference will be given to those engaged in the Pres House community and/or who have not participated in a previous BWAP trip.
