Application steps

1: Submit an application

Please complete the following application form (download here) and send it to Mrs. Thi Thu Ly Tran along with your resume to vietnam@maison-change.org. This step is crucial because it enables us to get to know you better. So do not rush and fill this folder seriously. A first selection will be made according to your and our needs and available missions.

2: Interview

After receiving and reading your application, a skype interview will be set up with our volunteer manager. During this second step, we will define your mission together which should be in line with your expectations and our needs.

3: Contract

Once your mission is accepted by the founder, Tim Aline Rebeaud and the volunteer manager, a volunteer contract must be signed. Without it we cannot make a demand for your visa. At that time, we will send you the list of necessary documents.

* The duration of a contract is ideally for a minimum of 3 months. With this contract, Maison Chance will support your visa, accommodation and meals (lunch and dinner). If you want to stay with us for a shorter term, it is possible, but all the expenses mentioned above will be at your expense.
