All plans are tentative. We hope to have details finalized by mid-April, 2023.

The program will be limited to 40 participants. Priority will go to PEP veterans.
Please read all details below thoroughly! 

Orientation will be held in Edinburgh on Sunday, June 4th. Classes will run June 5-9.

There is still ongoing uncertainty with world events, Covid, the economy, and more. There is always a chance that facilities could choose to cancel PEP at the last minute. If classes are canceled, PEP will not reimburse volunteers for any travel expenses that have been purchased. You should use your own judgment and discuss refund options with any airline, hotel, or transportation provider you select to make sure they are flexible enough for your comfort level.
