Nassau is a remarkable city, the people are warm and good-natured. Being a volunteer here will require a careful combination of dedication, patience, positivity and resilience. You will have an opportunity to meet people from every walk of life, and from all over the world.
We're a international backpackers hostel on the ocean, we're one of the only hostels on the island and cater to a diverse crowd of people. We organize weekly Yoga classes, kayaking, snorkeling, and feeding of the piglets.
We aim to keep a friendly and professional atmosphere full of life and activities, as such we're looking for passionate people with positive energy and drive.
Here's what we're looking for -
As an ocean-front property we have constant maintenance, if you're handy with wood, plumbing, electricity or masonry we'd love to have you for a few hours a day.
We have a lot of plants to take care of on-site and would appreciate a gardener for a few hours a day to help maintain the grounds.
We do Yoga classes if you have experience or are an instructor of yoga or any other martial art and would feel comfortable teaching a 1 hr class daily we would also be interested.
Artists - We have a secondary location where we are looking for painters, sculptors, artists from all walks of life to start a residency with us. Please contact us for more details.
Feel free to offer any other kind of services, ideas, insights, we'd love to hear your thoughts.
Please keep in mind that what we offer is not a ticket to free accommodation, but an exchange — a free stay for a few hours of your time —
