We have opportunities to join for 2 weeks up to 12 weeks.
All projects run from the Monday morning on the starting date, to the Friday afternoon on the finish date. Participants can book a minimum of a two-week slot, or multiple slots, up to three months (six slots) maximum. It is advisable to arrive before the departure date, and give yourself enough time to reach the airport for your flight out. All accommodation before and after project dates is at your own cost, as is the optional weekend at the end of every 2-week slot.
