I consider it a privilege to work at a company that is a pioneer of the fair trade movement. The mission adds deep meaning and fulfillment to the work I do each day.

Answered by Ten Thousand Villages

For me it was very fast, I filled out some paperwork and then I was good to go.


The pace usually was steady with flow of traffic.


They have continuiously expanded their locations and I think they will still do that in the years to come to help even more people in countries that struggle with poverty.


I worked an average of 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.


I look forward to it every time I volunteer because I know this time I spend working for free is helping someone else make money for their family.


Talk to Alex about why you want to volunteer there and how many days you are available.
