Participants volunteer at "exchange sites" such as community centers, nursing homes and hospitals.  Upon completion of the program (25-50 volunteer hours), the participant receives an Exchange Credit Certificate, redeemable for their chosen activity, as well as the skills learned through their volunteer experience.
