Typical Volunteer Work Schedule
Full-Day Volunteer Work Schedule
What is a “day in the life” of a Global Volunteer like? Our local partners will direct you on a daily volunteer work schedule on defined community projects, providing evenings and weekends 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 within your volunteer work schedule. Your combined federal and state income tax savings for your tax-deductible volunteer programs, are about 33 percent of the total service program cost.
