Living in Lithuania requires individuals to be more physically active than might be the case in North America - more walking, e.g. Ability to travel internationally, handle own luggage, etc., and keep the demands of an intensive program schedule (work hours into the evening, etc.) are also necessary.
All staff will participate in 3-4 days of on-site orientation as part of becoming familiar with the program and the cultural context. We often suggest the novel Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys as an engaging look into one of the region's most significant events in recent history.
