    • Hi Gatluke, the application consists of your cover letter, 500 word background letter, resume and 2 references. Once you’ve completed all these, just mail it or email it to Fanis. I hope that answers your question. Please let us know if you have any other questions about the application process or any other YCG related issues. Thank you and good luck.
