With both ongoing and summer programs, volunteers are expected to work between seven and eight hours a day, from Monday to Friday. Weekends are kept free for the volunteers to go sightseeing or spend their time as they please.
Summer short-term programs involve small groups of volunteers and take anywhere between one and four weeks to complete, while ongoing long-term programs can run anywhere from one month to a year. Volunteers are at liberty to indicate which projects they are interested in and for what duration. We are happy to accommodate any special requirements with regard to dates and types of programs.

As the work is purely voluntary, no special skills, experience or knowledge are needed. The activities carried out are always aligned with each participant’s physical and mental capabilities. It is a good opportunity for eager and curious volunteers to explore new avenues. Technical leaders are always present in each project to lead the work process and constantly monitor the situation to ensure the safety and wellbeing of volunteers.
