    Description

    Amazing Opportunity!! Volunteers welcome for coworking project in beautiful country side Finca.

    Hola! I´m super excited to invite you to be part of this amazing initiative.

    This place is all about one dream, to find the balance between work and connection with nature and have some fun along the way!

    We are a group of people from different backgrounds, 2 Colombians, 1 Austrian, 1 Spanish, and 1 Argentinian all acting together with one dream in common: Help locals improve their language skills and also share our passion for Nature, healthy living, yoga, eco-building.
    That´s why we have turned a traditional Colombian Finca into a wonderful coworking space where people can enjoy being in a beautiful countryside environment and still be able to work remotely.

    We have created a space for volunteers to come and share their experiences and knowledge and in exchange, you can experience Colombian culture and community while you learn, about Eco construction, yoga, permaculture, go on trekkings get to know the beautiful surroundings, share healthy living habits and of course help Local people improve their English.

    This is not just any Language learning project. We want to create an exchange experience, an environment where people can feel they have learned skills and get to feel more confident using English in their day to day.
    We already have an English Teacher on the team.
    A good level of English is essential

    Our main aim is to help young local professionals to improve their English skills in an amazing laid-back natural environment.

    This is a coworking space in nature with eco-building projects, permaculture, yoga, healthy eating, and many other activities and possibilities and the Finca is located near GUATAPE, one of the most popular and colorful villages in Colombia.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Volunteers will have plenty of time to thoroughly explore the beautiful surroundings and nature, the waterfalls, and the Finca facilities.
    There is a good local transport service that takes you to Guatape town and that leaves just outside the property. We also have bicycles that can be used to explore and get around.
    Guatapé was farmland until Colombia flooded the area in the 1970s to create a dam. Now, it’s a major draw for tourists looking to climb the Piedra del Peñol or take photos of the multicolored plazas filled with zócalos, painted panels adorning various buildings. Definitely a place not to miss in your path through Colombia.
