After 9:30 PM: Time to relax, gather with other volunteers and socialize, or go out on your night off.

Saturday and Sunday– Sometimes there are village activities planned by the activities committee or special olympics depending on the season. Some coworkers go home with their parents on the weekend, and there is a group of that goes to church on Sunday mornings. Volunteers can plan something with their house or with another village house. In the first 4 weeks at Innisfree, volunteers have these days off. After the trial month, most volunteers have either Friday/Saturday or Sunday/Monday off.

Tuesday– This is house-cleaning and grocery shopping day. Sometimes coworkers have appointments tuesdays since all house volunteers are on this day. Occasionally there are activities planned for afternoons of evenings, and there is horseback riding that volunteers can participate in if they wish.
