but CHECK first if you qualify

UPDATED! Fast Track to volunteering in Iceland or Switzerland

Unfortunately we do not have time to go through all the applications for volunteering so we have made it simple for people who really want to join our community.

You can book an introductory stay through Airbnb, up to one week. During your introductory stay you can evaluate if you would be interested in staying and ultimately volunteering for a longer period.

Like so many volunteering organizations we need to charge you a small fee so that we can cover the cost of the accommodation. The basic fee is now Euro 20 per night. This fee could be slightly lower or higher depending on how good you are at volunteering. In any case if this fee were to be adjusted we would do that in consultation with yourself. The introductory stay may be priced differently.

The responsibility to select the right person to volunteer lies much with you yourself because if volunteering with us does not suit you it surely does not suit us either, because we only want to have happy volunteers. So if you are considering volunteering you really need to understand what is on offer and if that is suitable for you and if you have what it takes.

Please do a self check first to see if you qualify

If you are not sure when you would like to volunteer feel free to express your interest by filling out this form here

It is not possible to book an introductory period over the holidays through Airbnb because we would like more control over who comes during that period. But if you really like to come soon just send us an email to volunteer.iceland.switzerland@gmail.com

In addition to booking your introductory stay please also fill out this form here and connect via WhatsApp with the telephone number that is given there and introduce yourself telling us about your airbnb booking but also about how long you are interested in staying in total. What languages you speak and in what way you think you can be of the most help.
