Registration and Payment

The Registration Process

  • Click the register button to join a trip and then sign the online waiver. Choose which trip on the registration form. No payment required.
  • Your Team Leader should be in touch within 2 business days, if they have not already, to discuss their trip. Team Leaders must approve each participant who applies to join their team, so be sure to respond to their messages right away in order to gain approval and reserve your spot. Many choose to discuss with the Team Leader first so they have pre-approval.
  • For safety considerations see the U.S. State Department travel advisories.

After registering, you’ll receive essential trip information from:

  • Your registration confirmation email, including:
    • Your Fuller Center Country Guidebook
    • Links to your online pre-trip training
  • Your Team Leader
    • If you have not been in touch already, they’ll be in contact with you within a few days of registration to discuss trip expectations, answer any questions, share arrival flight guidelines, and approve your participation.
    • Once approved, you may make your payments
  • Payments
    • Your fee covers in-country food, lodging, transportation, emergency travel medical insurance and a donation. It does not include airfare, team R&R excursions, souvenirs, or any tips you may want to leave.
    • All payments and forms are due 45 days before your trip. Late fees apply.
    • A $400 non-refundable deposit is due within 2 weeks of applying. This applies only to open teams, not churches or schools.
    • Pay online, or by check at the address at the bottom of this page.
    • If your travels keep you away from home before or after the official trip dates, our travel insurance will cover you at an extra cost of $3/day. (This does not apply to Puerto Rico.)
  • Policies
  • Fundraising
    • You may choose to create a fundraising page through our site to cover your fee. Remember that the same deadlines apply, so start fundraising early.
    • Third party fundraising sites like GoFundMe or Facebook cannot be used for our trip fees.

Coordinate with your team leader before purchasing a flight. Teams should arrive together. We provide emergency medical insurance, not trip cancellation insurance, so consider purchasing your own when you purchase your ticket.

And then…
Congratulations! You’re all signed up. Continue on to Prepare for Your Trip.
