Volunteer opportunity posted by: Kalikalos Holistic Summer School
Posted on: December 11, 2012
Every summer, to staff the Kalikalos Centre in Greece, we look for individuals with community experience and a holistic perspective, who enjoy working with groups. The opportunities here are somewhat similar to those offered in WWOOFing, except that working in our organic vegetable garden is only one of the many things our staff do.
Staff coordinate the centre rhythms, organise the vegetarian meals and clean-up, assist with transport to and from the beach, help with gardening, maintenance and shopping, carry out maintenance and minor building, work in the office and facilitate staff meetings.
Some useful skills here are group process, healing, maintainence, vegetarian cookery, organic gardening, carpentry, building, IT, or fluency in Greek language. The ability to enjoy working in a team where you can balance your own needs with the group needs is an asset.
Volunteers come for 2-16 weeks in the summer and work about 30 hr/week with one full day off and every afternoon free for the beach or hiking or just relaxing. We ask for a contribution of €75/week for your first two weeks here to cover food, accommodation and the orientation training we give all new staffers. After that, if it's working for you and for us and you want to stay longer, we would hope to be able to offer full work exchange for further weeks.
We are an international group and part of our richness is the intermingling of people of all ages from many different countries, walks of life, spiritual paths, genders and backgrounds.
