Start Dates

The programs in India have completely flexible start dates most months of the year. It is generally suggested that participants arrive between Sunday and Wednesday to go through orientation and then jump right into their project.

ELI volunteers take a taxi to a hotel for their first night in Chennai.  Orientation starts the next morning.ยท During the orientation we will help you set up a cell phone, exchange money, and take you sightseeing in Chennai before you settle into your program.

Orientation and Accommodations

Most participants spend their first night in the YWCA International Guesthouse in Chennai. Orientation starts the next morning. During the orientation we will help you set up a cell phone, exchange money, and take you sightseeing in Chennai before you settle into your program.  Accommodations for the remainder of the program vary by project.
