Program Details

This IS a volunteering project we ALL make part of and we will treat you as family here in our HOME-BAKERY. We are in this world to help each other and we love this kind of exchange.

We are located in Praia de Itapeva, Torres - Rio Grande do Sul. A wonderful place for lovers of the sea, nature and extreme sports. We are very close to a beach known for its natural beauty (Praia da Guarita), and many other beaches. In addition you can enjoy or better know a type of healthy and functional bakery. Inclusive on your free time you can learn how to make our breads and cakes and take it to your life!


Activities & Shift

The work is 5 hours a day/5 days a week.
Usually our schedule is very flexible, specially on summer.

Basically it is helpings us on daily tasks such as cleaning the bakery, cooking lunch and cleaning the kitchen after meals ;o), helping on our bakery, receptioning and serving clients, gardening and cleaning in general, playing with the kids or helping them with school homework, building or painting something in the yard, etc...

We need someone responsable, respectful and PROACTIVE to help keeping the house clean and tidy. You have to like children and animals. If you choose to volunteer with us, you should keep in mind that the little ones require a lot of love, playfulness and patience.


Rules

We use our VW Kombi Van to work on Saturdays and Sundays' mornings, so if you do not wish to be awake very early bring your own tent.

The place where the volunteer sleeps and the toilet used by him or her must stay CLEAN and organized during the days of the volunteering and shall be cleaned on the same day of departure, right BEFORE LEAVING.

The volunteer needs to be PROACTIVE and show real interest on helping and sharing life... We don't like people standing in the middle of the way "just wondering" during their volunteering time. We will try always to be honest and objective in communicating and assigning tasks but we'll be always open to new ideas and REAL actions.


DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ABUSE ARE FORBIDEN.
