Can I request a preferred country if I am selected?
No. CTF matches educators where they will do the most good, based on various factors such as the needs identified by the partner organization in the country of assignment, the participant’s background and areas of expertise.
Is there training before I go overseas?
Yes, From February to June you will work with a Team Leader and the rest of your team, with periodic input from CTF. Also, CTF provides workshops as part of an Orientation for Project Overseas participants in Ottawa the first week in July, before your assignment starts. Following your assignment, CTF will contact you with a “Welcome Home” package.
What happens if I have to drop out at any point in the process?
Emergencies happen. If there is a situation that arises that could cause you to drop out,
please let CTF or your team leader know immediately. In some cases they can work with
you and make minor adjustments to accommodate a situation. If you have to drop out,
please contact your provincial organization and CTF as soon as possible.
