ITW Travel Tips

• Your arrival date to PI is going to be one day later than departure date. For example, if you are to arrive on Tuesday, your departure from the the U.S will be Monday due to time difference

• Exchange at least $20 in PHP (Peso) currency through your Bank in the U.S or at the airport

• Uber is very convenient and user friendly. Note: sometimes the drivers do not add the tolls in the Uber price. Some do and some don’t. You should simply ask, “What do I owe?”

• If you don’t use Uber, GRAB transfer is available right outside the terminal. You can ask any airport attendant for its location.

• If you fly in late at night, do not travel to the training center unless you buddy up. Wait until daylight.

• You will need to bring twin sheets: fitted and top sheet, along with pillow. You can use your travel pillow to conserve space. One towel and any other personal items you may need.

 

ITW Uniform Guidelines

General Guidelines:

The idea of a uniform is to be uniform. In past ITWs some students have tried to be very “creative” in establishing their own identity or style. However, this has sacrificed the uniformity that we are trying to achieve. This is not a special meeting… this is Intensive Training Week!

Please be respectful of our request that you wear the uniform without your special touches added to it. Thank you in advance for complying with the uniform requirements of Hope Corps.

NOTE: No jewelery of any kind is to be worn during the ITW, including wedding rings. Sleeves are to be worn below the elbow, this includes the off day.
