Volunteer opportunities at Abrazo House
Volunteering at Abrazo House
Since 2005, hundreds of people have come to Abrazo House to get their hands dirty and gain skills.
What will I be doing?
Volunteers are expected to come with a desire to learn and work, and to stay a minimum of one week. Preference is given to those who are willing to stay longer, if all goes well. In any case the first week is a trial period to make sure we all get on together.
Working hours and tasks depend on factors including the type of work that needs doing at a particular time, the weather, and the capacities of the participants. On average, over the season, we tend to work about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Volunteers usually work alongside us and do the same tasks that we do, but we don’t expect volunteers to do anything that they don’t feel comfortable with.
Accommodation is in a caravan, woven hazel dome or tent. The midday meal is communal; volunteers are responsible for their own breakfast and evening meals which they can prepare in the shared kitchen.
Volunteers are asked to bring work clothing, rain gear, and a sleeping bag with them.
