Vacation Angels empower and mentor new SMOV recipients on healing vacations. Becoming a peer mentor for a first time to a SMOV recipient is a meaningful experience and a perfect way to pay it forward. If you have attended a trip with SMOV and found tremendous value in the experience and want to share your excitement with Program is perfect for you.
Once you choose to participate, you will receive a SMOV Volunteer Training Manual and SMOV Code of Conduct booklet for your review and consent. When you have signed it and mailed it in to your Vacation Champion, you will be required to raise $100 per day (including arrival day but not departure day.) These funds can be deposited on the Donate Now button on the SMOV website. The funds you have raised will cover your accommodation, food, activities and taxes. You will be responsible for providing your transportation to and from your vacation destination.
Your Vacation Destination Champion will guide you in your new role as a Vacation Angel. You may be asked to attend one group call before traveling to review your responsibilities on the trip as a volunteer.
You may attend any SMOV vacation as often as you wish. A Vacation Angel application can be found on the SMOV website.
