Hi, We are a team of traveller entrepreneurs starting up a nice and cosy Hostel in Jericó, Antioquia, Colombia. We have been working on several projects including developing a new rural hostel 2 km outside the town, a coffee brand, teaching English to locals and working with a chocolate business.
We need volunteers to give us a hand with reception, construction, decoration, graphic design, photography, web design, English Lessons and digital media. Also, we are developing a coffee brand to take back the dignity to coffee farmers paying them way better than other companies and giving them back a part of the profits.
In the hostel, volunteers have the opportunity to learn about tourism, Spanish, Digital Marketing, Content Creation and many many others. Our hostel is known for creating solutions based on reviews from customers, so we have a lot of projects in different areas every week.
Spanish, English and Portuguese
In the hostel, the accommodation is in private rooms when there are couples or in dormitories if they are sole travelers. There is a hammock area, reading lounge, patio, garden, balcony and is only 3 blocks away from the main Square of the village.
Opened over a year ago, we've had plenty of good experiences where the volunteers fell in love with Jericó and wanted to stay for longer. We've given the opportunity to travellers to develop their skills and contribute with the education for locals.
