Being flexible and adaptable in your work style and understanding constraints such as language barriers and resource limitations will be beneficial.
The level of contribution by volunteers and the specific tasks assigned can vary based on their skills and proactive approach. We encourage volunteers to identify where their skills can be best utilized and take initiative in their work.
