Career Training Challenges: Time: Home


A recent study finds that Americans have more free time than generally recognized. On average more than 5 hours of free time each day, with men generally having more free time than women. Since the pandemic, the average time spent in leisure and sports activities increased by 32 minutes per day, from 5.0 hours in 2019 to 5.5 hours per day in 2020. Leisure time increased by an average of 37 minutes per day for men and 27 minutes for women. This increase partly reflects a decline in average work time as the share of the employed population fell during the pandemic and a decrease in the average time individuals spent traveling.

Since lack of time has been the #1 common challenge cited by patrons, this activity will help take a deep dive into populations' typical day to identify open leisure time. Project SANDI is offering life-changing career opportunities that would require anywhere between 8- 15 weeks of training.
