How to apply to be an accompanier
Accompaniers (knowns as “EAs”) serve for three months in international teams. They live and work mostly in West Bank cities and villages. The program welcomes inquiries from the United States at <email@example.com>
An application form and references are available here (see below) and can be submitted by email (send a note to the e-mail address below if you prefer to send your application by postal mail).
Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Candidates are interviewed by members of the EAPPI-US Coordinating Committee and recommended to the World Council of Churches' EAPPI staff in Jerusalem. Those who are interested in volunteering should allow at least two months for application processing and up to six months for fundraising.
EAs from the United States are responsible for raising the funds needed to cover the cost of their participation for one three-month term, including roundtrip travel to Jerusalem via Washington, DC. Partial scholarships are often available.
Applicants should be at least 25 years of age and in good health. They are encouraged to discuss with family, friends and church community their interest in volunteering through EAPPI with their family, friends and church community.
