Carol: One way around the timekeeping dilemma is to have volunteer activity on weekends or other nonwork time. Also, it depends on how you define work. If volunteer activity is made a part of the organization’s mission – building community relations, for instance – then, the time spent ‘habitating for humanity’ is work. I guess I have a military bias rather than a civil servant bent – not all work is done chained to a desk eight hours per day.
