Volunteer participants will take part in various community initiatives, including the clean up and rehabilitation of local schools, English language instruction, teach and assist classes in science, music, art and dental health and hygiene. Yet another service opportunity is working with young adults with Down's Syndrome. Volunteers have the opportunity to help them build self-sustaining skills such as cooking, dancing, horseback riding and other "buddy activities" that help with socialization, assisting them on the road to independence.

Hands on cultural activities include touring the country's capital, Tirana, touring historical sites, mosques, churches and museums, and enjoying cultural activities such as a performance by the country's national theatre. In the mountain town of Boga there is ample opportunity to enjoy hiking and swimming in the hotel pool in your free time.
