Program Details

We have cleaning positions that require help a two or three days a week. Cleaners receive a bed in a four person dorm with other volunteers. We also have reception positions that require help two or three days as ell but longer hours than the cleaners; for this the reception would be compensated with a bed in a two person dorm shared with another receptionist. We may ask for a phone or Skype interview, and for reception we may ask for references. A minimum of two months commitment is required for these positions.
