We request a delegation fee of 375 US dollars from each delegate. This fee is used to cover the time and expenses of the El Salvador staff in planning and attending the delegation. In addition, each member pays the costs of the trip itself, which include transportation, food, lodging, and all other activities included in the itinerary.
U.S. committees are responsible for the recruiting and organizing of delegations, so get in touch with your local committees´s leaders. Or, if you´re not sure who to get in touch with, you can contact our main office at sistercities.elsalvador(at)gmail.com
