    Hi, we are a fun group of inspired individuals who are dedicated to do our best to make this world a better place and focus on what brings us together as human beings, rather then what divides us.

    We invite you to join us for a fun, inspiring cultural exchange and collaborate with whatever your skills are at our Los Angeles headquarters and beyond! We always work on some sort of inspiring project , and many of us have traveled and volunteered all over the world ourselves, so we love meeting new people and have a chance to share with the international community what makes Los Angeles such a special and inspiring place.

    Hi future new friends!
    If your are a world traveler, explorer, adventurer and true world citizen that loves to make the world a better place while meeting awesome new people, and you love to learn about new ways of applying your skills while giving back to the world, we welcome you to learn a little bit more about this workaway opportunity!

    About our name : When the world is in trouble the world needs Heroes .... and since everyone has the power to be a hero for someone else or some worthy cause, there is always a lot of stuff to do. Some things we do are super fun, and some is hard work... so tasks and ways to collaborate with us always change depending on what sort of project we set our minds on. But one thing is for certain, your skills and willingness to collaborate is always greatly appreciated !!!

    So we want to invite you to connect, collaborate and create with us at our Los Angeles headquarters where we have a group of about 10- 15 Organizers ,Artists and Activist who live here on a long term basis...Its also the Los Angeles landing spot for many of our other young volunteers who are frequently visiting us from different corners of the world.

    We chose our workaway volunteer collaborators based on the idea that each puzzle piece is equally important , but never the same, so the things you will be doing here are very much based on what skills you bring to the larger puzzle and what puzzle piece we are currently looking for in order to complete the larger picture.
    We appreciate all kinds of skills ranging from the ordinary to the extra-ordinary!
    each puzzle pice in life has a perfect fit, and is equally important and necessary, be it just helping to keep things clean and beautiful or something more specific like social media and webdesign skills, Non Profit research , outreach and grant writing skills, Artistic skills like music and multi media production or great people skills to inspire and mentor our youth.
    So we are always eager to hear WHAT SKILLS DO YOU HAVE and try to find a way how we can find a way to integrate your skills into the larger picture in a way that helps us to connect , collaborate and create a better world together.
    We dont have many rules because we believe in the power an individual to self-reflect and self-correct . So if you need lots of rules, this might not be the best place for you.

    Accommodation

    Our Visitors have the opportunity to stay in our awesome Workaway "Glamping Tent" (foam matresses with bedding and towel provided ) Some visitors chose to sleep in hammocks outside under the stars in what we call our "Trillion Star Hotel" which is ur backyard with trees and stars and a fire pit . Sleeping outside or Clamping with us is super fun and safe to do since our property is all gated and peaceful in a good neighborhood with very low crime. There is WIFi throughout the whole property and you have access to any of the 3 full bathrooms in our main house were you can also share the kitchen with those who live at this awesome artist community.

    FOOD. If you here to help us 3 hours a day, as a rule we don't provide meals, but you are welcome to use our kitchen and all the spices and some bulk food items. Please be mindful not to eat other residents food. at our place we all have different schedules so everyone feeds themselves. If you are part of a project which asks you to help more than 3 hours a day we will feed you, but usually we require your help less than 3 hours a day 5 days a week, so you have tons of time to explore LA. We do occasionally have huge community dinners and BBQs and people often cook for each other so when this happens we usually invite everyone to join for the feast..... but please note that we are NOT responsible to feed you if we use you less than 3 hours a day. We love having many workaways at times since we all have so much fun meeting new friends, and it helps divide the load, but it also would make it to expensive to feed everyone, so please understand that you should prepare to buy your own food most of the time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We love to work hard and play hard and put empasis on focusing on what brings us together as human beings rather then what divides us.... so we love people from all walks of life with a variety of awesome skills.
    Depending on what we work on you will usually be expected to help out or share yours skill for about 4 hours a day 5 days a week, and we usually try to get things done in the morning so you have your entire day and evening free to do as you wish and explore what Los Angeles and Hollywood has to offer. If your a night owl and prefer to workaway in the evening and depending on your skills, we are always open to be flexible with schedules and extra days off, as long as you let us know ahead of time, so we know when we can count on you to be part of our collaborative team, so dont hesitate to let us know about an imaginary fun 5 day hiking/ camping trip someone invites you to participate in! We want you to have awesome experiences and fun in life! We often go on fun excursions ourselves, many times as a group, so you can also join us and hang out with us, be it on Malibu Beach, Hiking in the Canyons or exploring this crazy fun city and LAs culture and happenings ...

    we are close to public transportation which connects you to North Hollywood, Downtown and with a little time all the way to Venice beach.... Driving to the beach by car takes 30 minutes but there are many cool places to explore locally and we have bikes you can borrow and a long awesome bike path all the way to Balboa lake and park and bird sanctuary etc.

    there are tons of restaurants , grocery stores , gyms and other stuff you might like to have access to all within walking distance and night time entertainment a quick uber or bike ride away down at Tarzana Village and on Ventura Blvd.

    no matter if you love just laying in a hammock under trees and read a good book, watch a movie with others under the stars on our outdoor projector , make a camp fire and sing songs or share stories, or even make a friend and maybe hit the night scene with your own local guide, there is something for everyone to get inspired by.

    We certainly look forward to get inspired by you! So let us know about your hopes and dreams and what your all about and what are your super hero powers and we will do our best to get back to you asap!
    We hope to meet you soon!
