Q: Do I have to follow the project itinerary?

A: Many volunteers choose to stay in the host country longer than the program specifies, or to arrive for a few days before it begins. This is perfectly fine, however travel expenses related to non-program stay may not be tax-deductible. Check with a tax expert for details. In addition, accommodation, meals, and transportation outside of the specified program adventure are not the responsibility of Globe Aware. Volunteers may NOT stay longer at the actual host site.
