This list has been compiled with the assistance of Volunteers serving in Georgia. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list, bearing in mind that experience is individual. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you personally and professionally. As you decide what to bring, keep in mind that you have a 100 pound weight restriction on baggage. And remember, you can get almost everything you need in Georgia.

[edit] General Clothing

Volunteers in Georgia may come unprepared for the flexibility between rural and urban dress. Living in the regions will require you to dress professionally and fairly modestly. Professional dress at your site means clean and conservative—not necessarily dress suits or coats and ties. Georgians tend to wear black and other dark colors. It is not necessary for you to eliminate bright colors from your wardrobe; just be aware that they will make you stand out. Winters are quite cold and classrooms and offices are often not heated. Think warm clothes for the cold winters and cool clothing for the hot summers.

[edit] Women

Women’s clothing is available at various shops, boutiques, and markets, but good quality is expensive and styles are limited.

[edit] Men

Men’s clothing is readily available in Georgia at retail shops and markets, but good quality is expensive.

[edit] Miscellaneous

Note: You will need to prioritize to meet the weight limitations.

Depending on your region or placement, your heating may be very limited or close to non-existent. A hot water bottle is a good thing to consider taking from home.
