APPRENTICESHIP APPLICATION

The application is linked to a .PDF  and MS Word file.  If you are feeling creative, you can submit a partial video application, but name, country, address and date of birth must be in written/typed form.

In addition, please provide a reference (name, email or Messenger contact, and telephone) from someone who knows you well who can tell us why you would be a great volunteer for Harmonia.  Family and friends are fine.

All information will be held in strict confidence.  Answering yes to medications does not have any effect on your application status.  We need to make sure participants have an uninterrupted  supply of the prescription for the duration of their commitment to Harmonia.  We also need to know if you are weaning yourself off or stopping completely.  This is a decision between you and your doctor.  There is no judgment, just compassion for you well being if you go through the detox process.  We want to support each person through their journey, which requires transparency.

Please email application to Kelly Ann Thomas at kelly@harmonia.life

For further information, contact Kelly via phone or WhatsApp at  (505) 8819 7093 (Nicaragua), kellyKATkelly via Skype or Kelly Ann Thomas Gato Negro on Facebook.
