Other information:
The volunteer stipend depends upon each volunteer's accommodations. If the volunteer decides to live with a Foundation-provided host family, they receive free room and board and a monthly stipend of $350,000 cop, which is a bit more than US$100. If the volunteer chooses to live independently, they must find their own accommodation and pay for their own living expenses, but they receive $900,000 cop/month, which is about US$300. The cost of living is very low in Medellin and El Carmen, so these stipends are livable. Volunteers are given one week off per semester, and the Colombian school schedule includes a large number of long weekends.
