Beginning with orientation week volunteers are asked to commit to six weeks to focus on community. With the exception of previous commitments approved by the director, volunteers do not travel, have guests, or spend time outside of community during this period of time which facilitates the structures and bonding of community.
Volunteers are permitted two weeks of vacation time to be used at the volunteer’s discretion but not during the first six weeks. Volunteers are given holidays in conjunction with their perspective ministries. All vacation time and holiday time spent away from community needs to be discussed in the local community and shared with the director.
