Nice to meet you, {{answer_32149042}}! Now onto a few questions to check your Cultivate eligibility, and then we'll move to program-specific questions.

Are you legally authorized to work in the United States? *


 
We're so sorry! We'll need to stop the application here. Qualified applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States to serve with us.

 
Alright, are you between 18 to 28 years old? *


 
We're so sorry! We'll need to stop the application here. Qualified applicants must be between 18-28 years old to serve with us.

 
Great! Another thing about us is that we're a Christian ministry internship. Would you call yourself a Christian? *


 
We're so sorry! We'll need to stop the application here. Cultivate exists to serve the local Church globally, and so qualified applicants must share a Christian faith commitment.

 
Perfect. Now, the Cultivate Fall Residency is primarily geared for current college upperclassmen + recent graduates. 

Which category describes you best? *


 
We're so sorry! We'll need to stop the application here. Qualified applicants must be at least a sophomore in college by credits. We'd love for you to apply once you meet our program requirements.

 
Okay, since you're currently an upperclassman in college, will our program dates (July 3-December 8, 2017) work with your school schedule? *


 
Okay, go ahead and share your situation with us :

 
Thanks for that info! Since Cultivate is designed for current college upperclassmen + recent graduates, we'll have to get back to you on this. 

For now, we'd love for you to continue with the rest of the application!

 
Awesome! Now, do you have a valid passport? *


 
Great! When does your passport expire? *

Please note that if you are a global candidate, your passport will need to be valid for at least 6 months after the end of the internship. If your passport expires before then, you will need to get it renewed.
 
Thanks for letting us know! If you're a global applicant, you'll need a valid passport to be able to serve with us. If accepted to Cultivate, be sure to obtain one no later than July 2017.

 
Cool! Do you have any international exposure? *

As Cultivate is a global program, we give preference to candidates who have studied, served or lived in an international location

 
Alright, tell us where you went + some details about the trip(s)

Please include :
- Location 
- Start + end date (xx.xx.xx format)
- Purpose

Thanks for letting us know, {{answer_32149042}}. 

Living abroad without prior exposure to different cultures can be a challenge. We've made a note of this and will review with our team during our application selection committee.

 
Super! Now, which location are you primarily interested in serving at? *

Don't worry, you can indicate interest in multiple locations later

 
That's a great choice! Before we continue, we want to make sure that you'll be able to enter Lebanon. 

Have you traveled to or are you planning to travel to Israel before the Residency starts in July? *


 
Thanks for letting us know! Unfortunately, the current relationship between Israel and Lebanon makes it very difficult to travel between the two countries.

So, we'll need to talk through best next steps to work around this. We'll make sure to follow-up with more details later on in the application process.

 
Great! Okay, the next step is to assess your skill-sets. This will help us to know which project placements you're eligible for.

Go ahead and check each skill that's relevant to you; we'll request examples of these skills later in the process. If accepted, we'll match your skills with an available project placement. *

- ONLY check the skill(s) that you currently possess
- If none are relevant, you can choose "Generalist" indicating that you'd like broad ministry exposure here

 
Congrats, looks like you're eligible to apply to our program!
