We have identified seven different Roles that need to be filled for every trip. After you complete your International Training Specialist candidacy and are preparing to travel with LIFE International, you will be assigned one or more roles. Note: It is possible that one person could fill multiple roles during a trip.

Cultural Awareness

Whether you are a first time or seasoned international traveler, it is always a good idea to prepare for your trip by reviewing cross cultural issues.  Each country has its own unique culture and as a LIFE International representative we desire for you to be well prepared.  Preparation is the first step toward feeling less stressed in a new culture.

In our commitment to improving our quality of outreach and expanding the extent of our work, LIFE International is investing in you our International Training Specialists (ITS). The ITS program incorporates the Orientation training retreat to prepare our volunteers for international service at a very minimal cost to you.
