Students track their hours at site: Students will be responsible for keeping track of their own hours, and the Director and/or Project Manager will be working with them most of the time.
Students will work unsupervised:There may be projects where a small group of volunteers are available to help with a project, and the intern is called upon to supervise those volunteers. This would only take place once the intern is fully trained, has assisted in volunteer supervising before, and is comfortable supervising by him/herself.
