Duration: Squads can range between 1-2 weeks. In addition to the service component, cultural enrichment activities are available in each country (example: Machu Picchu visit).
Donation Goal: Each volunteer is expected to fundraise a minimum of $990 to cover all their in-country expenses, which includes: transport, local staff, meals, insurance, and accommodations in our private Home-Bases. Additionally, Squads fundraise towards a Group Project Contribution of $1500 or more.
Group Size: Each Squad requires a minimum of 5 volunteers and one adult chaperone. We provide 1 free adult chaperone with 5 students, 2 free adult chaperones with 6-16 students, and 3 free with 17-27. Maximum group size is dependent upon home-base capacity, generally around 40-50 pax.
