The applicant, the site coordinator and the YAV staff work together through a mutual discernment interview process for placement of each YAV. Candidates are encouraged to enter the discernment process with an open-mind and consider all sites (nationally and internationally) before narrowing their options. As a program, we take the unique safety concerns at each individual site seriously and work with local partners to ensure each YAV’s safety throughout the year, including contingency plans.
