  • Description

    Description

    We are a non profit group that organizes group travels for a very mixed, international audience. The trips evolve around a central theme (eg. mountains, winter sports or arts). Usually we are at some remote location high in the mountains. It's all about the group and enjoy the group dynamics. As a workawayer you will basically simply be part of the group and enjoying all activities; there is no division between 'staff', 'volunteers', 'participants'; we're all together.

    Apart from enjoying the outdoor activities, participants tend to discover all kinds of things about themselves. It's always an unforgettable experience. Group size is usually between 8 and 16 people.

    So far participants came from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, India, Iran, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, UK, United States and many others. Ages ranging from under 20 to over 50.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be part of a mixed international group (usually people from different countries and even continents sign up, ages ranging from 20 till in their 50s). You will learn about group dynamics and connection. But mainly, because you will be participating in the trip just like the 'normal' participants, you will have an amazing fun time.

    IMPORTANT: Volunteer assignments with me are always for a very short period, usually 5 days; max 7 days. If you are looking for a longer assignment, please do not contact me.

    August 16-23, 2020: we'll be in a hut just for our group high in the mountains in Switzerland.

    We're looking for someone that can teach yoga and massage (or yoga and other bodywork such as dearmouring etc.). The trip is all about connexion, that's more important than technique or which specific kind of yoga you can do.

    It's a mountain hiking trip, this only works if you love mountains and you love humans.

    There might be another trip later this year which will probably have fine art photography as a theme; if you can teach about model photography as art, or you can model, please let me know.

    WE DO NOT NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR OTHER PERIODS.

    --- If you write, please explain clearly why you are the right person for the position! ---

    THERE IS THIS OPTION AS WELL:
    We're also looking for volunteers that can help with a number of online tasks cq. tasks that can be done in your community. These can be done wherever you are. Regrettably we can not offer accommodation etc. _while you are doing the online tasks_ but we can offer you to participate for free in one or two of our adventure trips in Switzerland afterwards. These trips are 5 to 7 days long and include inspiration, accommodation in the mountain hut where the event is taking place (dorm rooms), full board and often meditations, yoga sessions, workshops... There are usually at least two in summer and two in winter to choose from.
    We're looking for people with skills and experience in this:
    - online marketing
    - event organisation
    - community building
