Volunteers are encouraged to develop a sense of place by staying in their locale of service on the weekends and over holidays. JVs still may have the opportunity to travel home for a special occasion or visit different parts of the Northwest. If they do want to travel (in the above ways), they will need to consider the needs of their agency, solidarity with those they’re serving, how they will afford to travel on their monthly stipend, the ecological impact of travel, and the effect leaving has on their community and locale.
