Visitor Guide

Please follow the steps below to assure a safe and enjoyable stay at The Leadership Center. See you soon!

We’re so excited that you are visiting Leadership Mission International’s (LMI) Honduras campus, The Leadership Center (TLC). TLC is a very special place that is filled with very special people. Although life at TLC is very different from the U.S., we know you’ll come to love it as much as we do!  

The following information will help you prepare for your trip; but if you have any questions, do not hesitate reaching out to our team at teams@leadershipmission.org.  We know that sometimes plans are last minute, but if possible, we ask that you complete the following tasks one month before your planned travel. Your TEAM LEAD will give you a TEAM CODE to use during this registration. Please have that ready before starting the steps below. 

Step 1

Leadership Mission International requires all volunteers, teachers, and visitors to have a basic international health insurance policy. Insurance is available at a reasonable cost from many organizations including “Go Mission”: https://www.gomissiontrip.com/

Other possible options for teachers committing to one year or longer are Atlas Travel Insurance (https://www.hccmis.com/atlas-travel-insurance/) or Global Travel Insurance (https://www.imglobal.com/international-health-insurance/global-medical-insurance).

Please purchase this policy and be prepared to input this information during registration. If you need an exemption from this, please email hannah@leadershipmission.org.

Step 2

LMI also recommends volunteers register in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a service offered by the US State Department: https://step.state.gov/step/

When you register, there will be a question “Where can the US Embassy reach you?”  Please put your emergency contact number or your phone number.  The address is Comayagua, Comayagua 

Step 3

While in Honduras, we will serve you 3 nutritious meals a day, provide transportation to and from the airport, and provide a roof over your head.  To help with this cost, we ask that you make a donation to the organization of $700 per person.  Please note that we offer scholarships for anyone who may have difficulty paying this fee so please reach out to hannah@leadershipmission.org if needed. 

*Long term staff members do not need to complete this step.

Step 4

LMI would like to make your visit to TLC a great experience!  To help us with this effort, we ask that you Register for your visit.  During registration, you will be asked for information from your passport, flight itinerary, and your purchased international health insurance policy.  You will also be asked to digitally sign three waivers that can be found here:

Step 5
