  • Help


    We would like our volunteers to help out with assisting in the classrooms and on the playground, help with preparation of food with the kids during lessons, invent and create building or permaculture projects around the school grounds. We will ask you to volunteer 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week. The roles may vary depending on where you skills lie and what you would like to offer.

    We look specifically for people to come in 2's. You will share a big beautiful room. You will be given breakfast and lunch eaten with the whole school. There will be a kitchen to use for dinner and many places in Arambol to eat for the evenings. There are one or maybe 2 people already living at the property, and teachers live close by in the village.

    All volunteers must have a police DBS check from their country of origin to show us before arrival. We are a working school, without this document we can not offer you a place.

    We ask you to come for a minimum of one month so the children may get to know you, and you them. You will be working closely with them and its helpful to get know the workings of the school day.
