Program Details

The Schedule: Volunteers have a Schedule of 25 hours a week, generally 5 hours per day with two days off. They can work morning, afternoon or night schedules, depending of our necessities.
The Work: The work consists mainly in giving support to the cleaning crew, making beds, cleaning bedrooms or other areas. The cleaning is about 80% of the volunteer work. Are you comfortable with this?
You will be also doing reception and bartending as well as any kind of administrative work that we need (translations for example). And of course, you are encourage to provide the guest the best experience possible - establishing good relationships and maintaining a relaxing and friendly environment. It's important for us to have a culturally diverse team that can relate to the guest and perhaps teaching a thing or two to us locals.
