Am I provided with housing?
Yes. Most, if not all sites, will have housing available for their volunteers.
Will I be living on the mission compound?

Will I have roommates?
Most likely. Most sites provide apartments or houses for their volunteers that will be shared with a few others. In a few cases, you may be living with a host family.
What food arrangements do I have to make?
Each summer and year-long volunteer will have one of the following options:
- be provided with a monthly or bi-weekly stipend once they arrive at their destination of service,
- eat on-site in the cafeteria
- fundraising for their meals before leavig the US.
