Sample Itinerary

This is an example to give a rough idea of what your week will be like. Please note that all of these activities are subject to change and will depend on: how many volunteers are there during the week, project availability, weather, previous progress, etc.

 
Volunteers should expect to work between 6 and 8 hours a day. You will have two to three hours of unstructured free time, and several cultural awareness exercises.
