Hi, would you mind specifying how many classes the volunteer is expected to teach?
Rebecca, Jan 4th, 2017
Hi Rebecca, it is 4 to 6 hours a day, 40 to 48 hours per week. We do not have a fixed schedule in terms of the timing so it is not a 9-5 job and some classes may be conducted in the night depending on the community's availability.
