Placement Deposit In order for us to secure your project placement, a non-refundable deposit of $150 must be made. This deposit will be used towards working on your placement. Once your placement request has been secured, you will need to pay the full amount within 4 weeks of receiving confirmation. The program deposit is non-refundable, except in cases where we are unable to make the intern placement you requested. This fee of $150 allows you to volunteer anytime within 24 months.
You can expect to receive a confirmation email from SFLIGvolunteer’s director within 2 working days of making your placement deposit and sending the receipt to us. This email will contain your orientation document. If you haven’t received a confirmation email from us within the expected time frame, kindly inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon receiving the complete program fee, we will furnish you with information about your project placement, such as your responsibilities, the local partner organization hosting you, and your host family details. Fourteen days before you arrive in the country, we will provide you with any additional logistics, such as airport pickup and any necessary information.
If you would like to extend your volunteer period, you can do so depending on our assessment of your work. Each additional week will cost $100.

If you need to make changes to your project preferences, such as thedate, location, or project, you can do so at any time but subject toproject availability. Please notify us as early as possible so we cancancel your previous placement and place you in your preferredchoice.
