    A BASIC LEVEL OF SPANISH IS REQUIRED because we only have a few English speakers in our community and they are not able to follow volunteers all the time.

    We hope that volunteers take initiative at work and that they like working with people from different cultures, children and mental health users. It is reauired a good level of leaderchip in order to manage small grup of people...

    We are SITUATED in Sierra Elvira, less than 10 km from Granada (reachable in 30 minutes by bus).

    NEARBY you can enjoy hot springs in the nature for free, explore andalusian culture in Cordoba, Sevilla, Granada, do sport in the mountain, go on excursions, go to the Alhambra, go to Sierra Nevada.

    Some rules to be welcome in our Community:

    Concerning the life in the Fundacion there are some important things to know.
    Firstly, we will provide you with a breakfast and lunch. In the evening the volunteers are supposed to cook for themselves, but we give you the food to do so.
    Also, we provide you with sheets and towels, but if you want to bring towels yourself, you're welcome to!
    The volunteers who come to the Fundación will live together in the house(s) which are meant for them. Depending on how many volunteers there are, you will either have a room for yourself or share it with someone else during your stay. All in all, it is like living in a big family; you'll be able to do things together, cook together and just generally spend time together.

    On to the working timetable. Like already mentioned before, the work each day is approximately 5 hours.
    * Monday to Friday we have communal breakfast it at 8:00 (this is obligatory, since we live in a community and we ask the volunteers to respect our way of living) and then start to work at 9.00 until 2.00p.m. when lunch starts.
    There's not one domain of work, but many. Depending on what is needed, there's work in the kitchen, in the kindergarten, in the garden, creative work and more.
    We ask the volunteers to be flexible (we are too!) and after a mandatory quick meeting with the whole group of resident and volunteers at 8:50 in the morning, we start our job.

    When living in a community like this, it is obviously important that there are some rules to maintain an organized co-living.
    This means no alcohol and no drugs for anyone. In addition to that, you will have to establish rules in the house you live in, like cleaning, washing the dishes, respecting when someone wants to sleep and so on. We really ask to clean the house whee you live during your spare time. Everyday we receive visits and new volunteers, and we like them to feel comfortable when they arrive.

    Last but not least, it might be interesting to know that there is good-working Wifi in the houses of the Fundación;) and that you can use our bikes to move.

    If you have questions of any type, you're more than welcome to ask me whatever's on your mind. In order to make the procedure easy, please send me a message with the EXACT date and time of arrival and departure you are proposing us.
