Read the website and the terms & conditions.


Register through the registration form. In your letter of motivation you indicate what you can and what you want to do, and if there is a specific vacancy that appeals to you. Based on this information On-Stage starts working for you.


If there is good or reasonable chance for successful matchmaking, then you will receive a prep & pack document.


On-stage sends a confirmation of your registration and will give you an indication of the chances that we can find what you are looking for. If you respond to one of the offered vacancies, this chance is very high. Some additional information may be requested.


Attention, please! Regular travel insurance is often not sufficient for longer stays and does not cover your liability for any volunteer activities. In collaboration with Joho, On-Stage offers good insurances. Please contact and mention you come through On-Stage latin America.


Once a match is found which is accepted by all parties, the agreement and a bill will be sent. You can buy your ticket!


On-stage arranges the practical matters such as the Spanish course and housing.


An airport pick-up is included in the mediation costs. Our English speaking taxi driver will wait for you upon arrival at the airport. He will take you to your housing in Granada and give you a "welcome-package". This contains the necessary information for your first days and some complementary goods.


A few days before departure you will receive a mail with some latest tips & reminders for your trip.


A few days after arrival, your Spanish course starts. During this course you will be introduced to the everyday life in Nicaragua. During the Spanish course someone of On-Stage comes to meet in person and to answer any of your questions. During the Spanish course you will get a mail containing the time, date and some other details concerning your first day of volunteering. On-stage accompanies you at this first day. So you will know where you should go, who your contact person is and what your first week will look like. If necessary, On-Stage will also help with translation.


On-stage is available by mail and phone if there are any problems that you cannot handle yourself and that are related to your internship, housing or in case of emergencies.


From this moment it is up to you to make a success of your volunteering. Depending your payment arrangements you will receive one bill before arrival, or also various bills during your stay. All bills during your stay should be paid to the local bank account of the On-Stage branch office.


Every semester On-Stage organzes one or two days with activities for an additional wage. You can choose freely whether you'd like to join in on these days.


On-Stage strives for sustainability in its pricing policy. On-Stage does not want to contribute to poverty by abusing the need of others. Many people in Nicaragua have so little that they are willing to sell their products or services for too little money so that at least something is earned in the short term. In the long term, this is often a recipe for disaster and does nothing to improve the (economic) situation of this person or business. Additionally, there is lack of education and a culture where one does not look beyond the present. Because On-Stage can offer more continuity to its partners, On-Stage helps them to improve their living standard in a structural way.
On-Stage Latin America doesn't strive for maximum profit. Profit is not the target but a condition to be able to continue with our work. Profit is needed to be able overcome hardships, to grow and to reward employees and partners decently. Therefore, On-stage chooses not to offer the lowest possible price possible, but to offer a fair price. These prices are still very low compared to most other countries and other mediation agencies.
Prices for housing, Spanish courses and the costs of living vary per country. In general you can say that the more developed a country is, the more expensive your costs of living will be.Underneath you find the prices our packages and a pricechart for basic expensesper country. On the pages with general information about every country you will find our packages and a price chart for basic expenses per country. These reflect the costs that are probably the most relevant for you. The price charts help you make an estimation of the quantity you might spend apart from your costs of living, the Spanish course and the administration costs for On-Stage™s mediation.
