Pros-Free range responsibility for developing your own projects
-Often no fixed work schedule
-Incredible opportunity to travel and explore
-Insight like no other into far flung parts of the world

Cons-No choice of where you end up
-Dont expect hand holding or much structure
-Personal life and enjoyment needs to become very flexible

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstandably difficult to match volunteers skills with petitioning hosts, but it would be good to listen to a volunteers stated desires and preferences a bit more when making final site selection.
