Estimate of the total cost you are likely to incur

Below outlined is a rough estimate of the total cost you are likely to incur from the preparation stage to the return home. The assumption made in this scenario is a 2-week program to teach English, Math or any other volunteer-teaching option on our list of volunteering programs.

So, a rough estimate of the total cost for a two-week program duration would be about US$1,650 - 3,050. Check the equivalent in your currency.
