Short Term Volunteer Program

Although not as extensive as the long term programs, getting involved for a shorter period of time will still give you an unforgettable experience.  The program will give you the chance to get immersed in the local culture during your time spent with the students. For periods up to two weeks the tasks will be more limited due to the time it takes to get adjusted into the new environment. For periods longer than 2 weeks you will have an opportunity to immerse yourself in some of the more “advanced” tasks that normally are assigned to long term volunteers.
