All tasks must be submitted every Saturday night at 11:59 p.m. New assignments will be given out on Mondays. Assignments should take no longer than 5 hours per week to complete. If volunteers would like to complete additional assignments, our organization will have a list of extra-hour opportunities available. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to request assignment extensions if a volunteer cannot complete the assignment during the scheduled week. Our organization may schedule a set time for internship/volunteer virtual networking events. We will make sure to let volunteers/interns know ahead of time of any events we plan.
