It honestly depends on the country you're serving in and the community you are placed in. Volunteer life and projects can vary greatly even within the same country. Your projects can range from working with youth in schools, taking on community improvement projects, working with local businesses and organizations, doing national initiatives, or working together with other volunteers on to collaborate on projects. You may work on an entrepreneurship program while also teaching life skills to youth while also doing English tutoring while also consulting with local businesses on how to do marketing. It really just depends. But you will also have a lot of down-time and personal time during your service and very little supervision.
