Q1 Is there an age limit for volunteering?   Q2 How long should I commit to the volunteer activities?    Q3 Do I have training prior to the volunteer activities?
A1 There is no age limitation for volunteering.



A2 It depends on the types of work you will take for volunteering. Each type of volunteering opportunity requires a different level of time commitment.  The time needed for translation work would be different than the time required for the one-day event.


A3 We don’t request or offer formal training prior to the volunteering activities but the team in charge of the volunteering activities may provide you with orientation if needed.
