  • end of service in hosting country
  • re-entry to home country

This process includes individual and group experiences.

SUPERVISION / MENTORING

CONTACT SENDING AND HOSTING ORGANISATIONS
There is regular contact between representatives of the sending and hosting programmes in regard to the volunteers.

HEALTH, ACCIDENT AND PERSONAL LIABILITY
Volunteer's health, accident and personal liability coverage is arranged between the partners.

WRITTEN AGREEMENT ON VOLUNTEER'S SERVICE
