TCOW 2013 Leadership Announced!

Two of the four leaders for the trip to El Salvador have been selected.

They are:

  • Desmond Jagger-Parsons
  • Ludanis “Lu” Jimenez Peralta

Short biographies for each leader will be posted on the Who Is TCOW? page soon!

January Pre-Trip Event Change

It was brought to our attention that the pre-trip event scheduled for January 26, 2013 was right in the middle of exams for many participants, so we’ve shifted the date to the following Saturday – February 1-2, 2013 – to make it
a little easier on everybody! Please mark your calendars appropriately.

Deposit / First Payment

As you may have guessed, the deposit/first payment ($400) will be delayed due to the shifting in the dates of interviews. We’ve decided it will be easiest to have the money come in at the first pre-trip event (September 29, 2012). For those who have already submitted monies, we’ll hold the cheque for deposit until September when we receive the others.

Applicant Interviews

Applicant Interviews will take place on Wednesday, July 18 at Parkminster United Church in Waterloo (275 Erb Street East, Waterloo) between 6 PM and 9:10 PM. To register for a slot, please go to this link (, enter your name and select your preferred slot, then save your selection. You can consider yourself confirmed for that time once you’ve submitted it. If we need to change anything, we’ll get in contact with you.

We know that there are a few of you who are away at camp or otherwise out of town and won’t be able to make it on this date, so for those who absolutely can’t make it to these interviews, we’re aiming for September 6 – please mark it in your calendars! If you think you’ll need to interview on September 6, please send an email to so that we don’t expect your name for the July date.
