The dates below are a guide, however, volunteers that join on short-term programmes (2/3 weeks) should arrive on a Monday, and will thus leave the project on a Sunday. Volunteers that join for 4+ weeks should just arrive on a weekday, even though it is preferred that all arrive on a Monday to facilitate training and welcome together.

Volunteers need to arrive in Manado before 6pm, or they would have to arrange hotel/hostel overnight near the airport at own costs. Only in the case of a delayed flight will it be possible to be picked up after 6pm. Please email victoria.mcneil@workingabroad.com for further details or any questions about dates.
