Essential Eligibility Criteria for all participants of residence across world.

Through community service, adventure travel, language study, home stays, and authentic cultural exchange our students receive insight into themselves while cultivating a sense of love and understanding for the areas in which they are travelling and the people with whom they interact. Kenosis Foundation (KF)’s programs are designed to be challenging mentally, physically, and emotionally. These EEC are intended to help potential participants understand what to expect and what will be expected of them if they are accepted into the Kenosis Foundation (KF) Program.

 

To be clear, Kenosis Projects Abroad(KPA) Education is an experiential education program. It is not a therapeutic program or a program for adjudicated youth. Kenosis Projects Abroad (KPA) Education is unable to accept students who require a therapeutic program or other services that are beyond the scope of practice of our staff.

 

These essential eligibility criteria (EEC) do not encompass everything that might be expected of potential program participants. Rather, they are intended to serve as a starting point for potential participants. Potential participants, parents, and educational counsellors should read these criteria carefully and consider whether the KPA Program is right for them. The KPA  Education reserves the right to not accept any student (and, if necessary, remove a student from the field) that we feel do not meet these criteria. The Kenosis Foundation is not a company,which works on profit making. We are a not for profit and charity based organization,which relies on international volunteers. So, the volunteers must pay for their entire cost of programs. Click here program costs and Info to know about our prices for all international participants.
