The aim of the volunteer program is to make our place more accessible by introducing a barter relationship.

Upon arrival, you sign a declaration of agreement with the general rules and daily routine.

 

You benefit from a serious decrease in the material or donation rate and have the option of becoming a member of the Zhelen community.

 

We ask the volunteers to help us sustaining the food, accommodation and overheads (see rates below).

Stay without donation is possible between April and November for a minimum of 60 days and with 5 hours of volunteering per day.

 

In exchange of your work we provide you more free time and options for training sessions
 

Volunteering includes: 

 

• Living together in a beautiful mountain area;

• Integral lifestyle practice;

• Healthy food;

• Cosy accommodation;

• Possibility to join up to two theoretical sessions per week.


This leads to fruitful self-development !

 

The volunteer program includes living in accordance with the rules and the daily routine while contributing to the maintenance and development of the facilities.

The minimal period for volunteering is one week.
It requires a considerable level of responsibility and the input of volunteer labour. 

You may have more free time, or join the training program at will.
