Rostro de Cristo hopes to re-establish our volunteer community by the Summer of 2022. The application for the 2022-2023 volunteer year will be made available in the Fall of 2021. Submitted applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and personal interviews will be scheduled with Rostro de Cristo staff upon submission of a completed application.

Accepted applicants will attend an orientation program in the U.S. in the Summer/early Fall of 2021 (exact timeline still TBD pending COVID vaccine availability). New volunteers depart for Ecuador from orientation. The volunteer’s service term in Ecuador lasts until August 2022.
