Who can be a volunteer?

Those interested in volunteering must be committed to giving their best; they must have a passion and desire to share their expertise and knowledge, and must be willing to give a minimum of an hour a week. While the program is voluntary, the commitment required is higher since the constancy and diligence to deliver courses and foster friendship-motivation requires a high sense of responsibility and dedication. Anybody can volunteer, especially if those who have an area of expertise or interest that they would like to teach or share with a needed community.
