Gaia é uma Família. Onde você pode ter [email protected] novos, onde pode curtir, onde pode ser você mesmo sem preconceitos, onde você vai receber amor real, onde você é feliz. Só tenho Gratidão com o team Gaia, toda a gente ensino coisas diferentes, aquí só tens energías boas. Além os hóspedes sãó maneiros, então a galera que conhecê é legal. Os tempos de trabalho se respeita, sempre recebe ajuda com sistema, com as tarefas, com tudo o que precisava para ajudar no voluntário, gratificante experiência. Obrigado por ser reales comigo, 100% recomendável.

Voluntariar no Gaia foi incrível. Passei 3 meses cuidando do bar e foi uma experiência ótima. As tarefas e turnos são respeitados como o combinado e Fernanda te deixa super à vontade para realizar seu trabalho da melhor forma. Existe abertura para recomendações e ideias. Fernanda foi sempre muito amigável comigo, me mostrou (e me acompanhou) em passeios e atividades feitas pelos locais e me permitiu conhecer o Rio com o olhar de um morador.
