Global Volunteers Program Itinerary
Full-Day Service Assignments
What is a “day in the life” of a Global Volunteer like? You’ll primarily work on service projects each weekday, with evenings and weekends available for free time. Your assignment(s) may be in one or several locations. However, you’ll be engaged, on average, eight hours a day in work preparations and at the work site to provide maximum value to the host community. We strictly adhere to IRS requirements for eight hours per day of work, five days out of seven, to ensure you can claim this tax benefit. When combining federal and state income tax savings, you’ll recover about 33 percent of the total service program cost.
