Morgan, most permies opportunities are not paid, meaning there's no stipend. Especially for a newby.
You would need a vehicle and your own income to come stay with us as we cannot afford to support someone. I am guessing that our stance is pretty common. Perhaps you can find something free on caretakers gazette.
Woofers also is about volunteer in exchange for room and board. You might consider getting a part time job wherever you land to continue to be able to fund your adventures into permaculture. We always host woofers who have an income of their own and a vehicle. Those are requirements to visit us.

Thank you for your informative reply. I do have my own means of transport and ample savings to get me through my first few months. Thanks for the tip about possibly requiring a part time job (I had considered it might be wise but didn't think too much on it.) Also, I do apologize if I came across as someone looking to live off a host, was definitely not my intention.
That all being said, I'm very interested in any opportunities out there. Feel free to email me with any further information/ applications
