Communication

How can I get in touch with my family and friends?
The most standard and universal way to communicate with your family and friends back home is by snail mail.  However, many of the sites open to students are now equipped with telephones, phone cards, fax, and email.  Missions encourages you to contact your desired site for specific details about the communication options available to you.

Will my loved ones be able to contact me?
Yes!  There are a variety of ways they can get in touch with you: via telephone, snail mail, or email.  Missions encourages them to contact your volunteer site for specific details about the communication options available to you.

If your friends and family in America are trying to contact you by telephone, it may get expensive to call directly.  Use a phone card!  The phone card minutes vary from country to country and differ between brands, so your loved ones should try out different phone cards to find one that allows you both to talk for the maximum amount of time.
