ROMP Volunteer Program FAQs
What is the process of signing-up and preparing for a program?
Once you have selected a program, please complete the online enrollment form. We will review your application and if you are selected, we will send you a link to Classy where you will register with a $100 deposit, which counts towards your total program fee and formally enrolls you in the program. From that point forward you can use your Classy campaign to fundraise. You will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to prepare for your trip. One month before your trip, you will receive an invitation to a pre-departure call during which we discuss the final details of your trip and answer any questions you might have.
What does the program fee cover?
ROMP charges all volunteers a program fee of $1,800, which covers all in-country transportation, lodging, food, components, and operating costs.
The program fee does not cover your airfare to Guatemala City, Guatemala or Quito, Ecuador.
What airport do I fly to and what time do I need to arrive?
You are responsible for purchasing your own round-trip airfare for your program. For all Guatemala programs, you should arrive at Guatemala City La Aurora International Airport (GUA) by 2pm on the first day of your program, and you can leave the same airport anytime on the last day of your program. For all Ecuador programs, you should arrive at Quito Mariscal Sucre International Airport (UIO) by 11:30pm on the first day of your program, and you can leave the same airport any time on the last day of your program.
