Once you have agreed upon a placement, your CV is sent to your potential host to introduce you before you arrive. In many cases volunteers 'live in’ with host families. The personal information helps hosts to recognize your suitability as a volunteer, and helps them to assign tasks that you are most likely to enjoy. Therefore, it is very important that you provide as much personal detail as possible to include information about your hobbies and interests, your background, education and aims for the future, etc. This will help us (and your hosts) to gain a better understanding of your personality and skills, and so to select suitable placements for you.
