Thank you for applying to join Kaya!

We accept applications throughout the year. Once you’ve completed this application form, a Kaya advisor will be in touch to arrange a short, informal telephone interview. Following your interview we’ll process your application and to confirm your space. You’ll be provided pre-departure materials to help you prepare and be assigned to an advisor who will be on hand to answer any questions you have before you leave.

If you’d like to apply but have some questions before you pay your deposit, choose the option to speak to an advisor before making your payment, and one of advisors will get in touch with you to arrange a call. Please be aware, however, that we are unable to hold your space on the project until we’ve received your deposit.

Thank you again for choosing a Kaya program. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
