Need info! Time needed to prepare
« on: February 13, 2014, 12:34:12 PM »
I have just received my invitation for service!

I would like to know, how much time did you have between your invitation and your departure date.

Thank you!

With the new application process everyone has at least 4 months. I personally have had 8 months. I read about people in the old system who had just a few weeks.

I'm confused by your question. Is the departure date not included in your VAD (Volunteer Description) that is hyperlinked in your email invitation?

Mine simply said September.  No exact date.
