I WILL

We are not able to give an answer until we have received three completed references for you. Once we have all of your references it can be anywhere from one day to a few weeks before you know if you are accepted. It will take longer to receive an answer during the month of December and the weeks surrounding the application deadline.

If you are accepted you will be emailed an acceptance package with more information. To secure your spot on the team, you will need to sign and return the mission release forms, and submit your non-refundable deposit.

The deposit can range anywhere from $100 to $500, depending on the total cost of the mission.

Yes, but you are only given a limited amount of time to submit your mission deposit. If you can raise the cost of the deposit, and submit it to CCO within a week of your acceptance, great!

The cost of a mission can be covered through personal payments, donations from others or some combination of the two. Upon acceptance you will receive a payment timeline and are expected to meet financial deadlines at checkpoints leading up to the beginning of the mission project. You are welcome to pay for the mission out of your own funds but we do encourage fundraising and provide tools to be able to do so.

No. However, if you have a surplus of funds after mission, those excess funds can be used to reimburse mission related expenses. This expenses could include things like transportation to the orientation city, vaccines, materials for thank you cards, etc.

Non-students are allowed to apply for CCO mission trips. However, since our organization’s primary work is with university students, students will have priority in trip placements. As well, as our missions are for university-aged young adults, applicants under the age of 30 will be considered.
