Program Details

At Nine you will join a community of travellers from all over the world. I try my best to make everyone feel like home, so I hope that any volunteer will feel so too. You will not just be working for me. You will join the Nine family and we'll do this together. So any input from your site is very valuable to me.

You will live in a beautiful monumental building from 1852 right in the centre of town. You will have your own spacious room next to the garden (shared bathroom with guests), a workspace, kitchen and all communal outside spaces like the rooftop and the garden to use.

Other than that, Tenerife is just the most amazing place to be. Especially the North side of the island, with all it's surf beaches, hikes and beautiful towns. As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to discover the island on your own or with me and the guest!


Activities & Shift

I (Anne) am the owner of Nine Coliving. We are a small team of 2 hosts, 2 volunteers (you and the yoga teacher) and the cleaning staff. You will therefore be part of a very small team with a lot of responsibility but also a lot of freedom.

You will be responsible for the kitchen and meals at Nine. This means helping to keep the kitchen clean, plan meals, do the groceries and cook. Every Wednesday we have family dinner, where we ask one of our guests to cook for the community. You will be helping this guests with shopping and preparing the meal. On Sunday we host a BBQ for the community.

We have quite some outdoor space at Nine that need maintenance. As a volunteer, you are responsible for the garden, the patio and the roof.


Rules

I think it might be good to know that Nine is not a party place. People come here to work and the house itself is in the centre of a quite town. Did doesn't mean there is no places to go out or guests are not in to going out, but if you are looking for a party place, Nine might not me your best fit.
