                                 APPLICATION ESSAY
Instructions:

On a separate sheet of paper please write 2-3 paragraphs telling us why you want to be a
participant on this tour. Your essay should indicate to us, (1) that that you understand the
nature of the tour; (2) that you are committed to its mission and style (see below); and (3)
why you will be a positive asset to the tour.

This essay is a personal expression. You will not be evaluated on your spelling, punctuation,
grammar, or even writing style.

We will accept people who we feel will contribute best to making the tour an enjoyable
success with regard to its higher purpose.

                                           ********

Mission Statement: The mission of the World-for-World 2009 Tour to Thailand is to promote
global citizenship, through cross-cultural immersion and compassionate service, in a context
of sustainable travel and transformative learning.

Style of tour: The World-for-World 2009 Tour to Thailand is a "co-created service-learning
adventure":

       CO-CREATED: this will be a collective experience (our objective is to travel as a
       cohesive community of purposeful learners ; not just a gathering of individuals each
       doing their own thing);

       SERVICE: we will be volunteering (physical labor will be required at some points) to
       make a positive difference in the quality of life for the people and places we visit, (we
       are not visiting just for our own self-interest);

       LEARNING: throughout the trip we will take time to reflect (discussion, journaling,
       meditation, etc.) on how these experiences shape how we hold ourselves in the world
       ("Global Citizenship" is the overall objective);

       ADVENTURE: while the tour has an organized itinerary and we will have a guide with
       us, you can expect on-the-edge, spontaneous, uncertain, and challenging moments to
       arise.

As a caring community, we hope to co-create a fun-filled and joyous program, to meet the
service learning objective of the tour, to ease any individual fears and worries that may arise,
and to have an unforgettably great time during this adventure!
