IMPORTANT: Please read carefully before applying

Each eligible woman or girl desiring to attend an Operation: This IS You! event must apply individually on their own merit, using a unique email address they regularly have access to. Applicants are cautioned to vigorously monitor their inbox, and any associated spam/junk/promotions folders for communications from us - we have no control over how email service providers may route our emails. Please be sure to add our domain to your safe senders list.

Though there are no "right" answers, we recommend applicants be thorough, thoughtful and sincere in their responses for best chance of being selected.

The person wishing to attend an event must apply on their own behalf, and must answer the questions in their own words, to the best of their ability. While you may provide assistance to another, you may not apply on behalf of someone else.

A completed application does not assure acceptance to an event. The selection process for each event varies depending on the quality of information provided, number of applicants, available space, nature of the event and other operational factors.

Admission to an event is by invitation only, without exception. Invitations are not transferrable and do not include any other person other than the successful applicant named in the invitation. RSVPs must be received by the stated deadline in order for the invitation to remain valid.

The information you provide us is protected once completed, and will not be shared with anyone outside of the Achieve Anything Foundation or agency partner hosting the event, without your prior consent.

You may apply to only one event at a time. Within 48 hours of a completed event, your status will be released and you may then apply for other events. If you have previously applied to an Operation: This IS You! event, or as a volunteer for the Achieve Anything Foundation, enter the email address you previously used and then select "login".

If you've previously attended an Operation: This is You! event, you are welcome to apply for others, however you may not repeat the same event.

The selection process for an event is ongoing and remains open unless otherwise indicated. We sometimes have last minute cancellations so if you're interested in an event and applications are listed as open - APPLY!
