It isn’t because all vacancies are closed. You can still have the experience of your life!
We don't open opportunities up until 6 months before because hosts usually don't know their availability, how many staff they will need or what they will need the staff for that far in advance.
But there is a way for you to begin planning your trip: save any opportunities you like in your Wishlist, so you don't forget to apply for them later.
Also, add a reminder in your phone or to your calendar to remember to come back and check in a few months!
