With this category you pay a minimum rate in exchange for volunteering. Volunteering is not just for young people. We appreciate all volunteers including those that are willing to guide other volunteers. This is a great place not only to relax but also to make a difference to this world by volunteering. Our Washitsu.Casa has a FANTASTIC Alp and lake view, weather permitting

Other things to note
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.

We are up on a green mountain at an elevation of approximately 1000 meters. It is an hour's walk to our place (uphill, downhill in the other direction) from essential services and public transport.

Your room is a mixed shared room. You must be neat and treat people on an egalitarian basis and be able to have positive communication with a variety of people. There is NOT a lot of space in the room, (you may be sleeping under a low roof), but the apartment is spacious enough. You can see mountains all over Switzerland but seeing the Swiss Alps so up close and personal makes the difference plus the lake view in front.

You must be able and willing to help about 3 hours per day. (This does not include cooking and your fair share of cleaning after volunteers) Depending on the situation you can help by cleaning, deep cleaning, with creative work perhaps based on your particular skill set and communication -in particular finding contacts and sometimes with translations. For translations you need to be fluent in English or German, plus in a third language.

Volunteering at our side and studying or working somewhere else is not compatible as you would not have enough time including the commute. But doing two of these activities if one of them is online might be possible.

This place is not for anybody who smokes, uses drugs or needs alcohol.

Sometimes we are not there ourselves. There may very well be some longer term guests or volunteers or not. In any case we can communicate online.

Longer stays are recommended.

You could help with some of the following:

Allow us to use your cool photos and videos
Provide edited videos
Make translations
Promote our place
Connect us with potential donors
Connect us with influential people (famous people, politicians, internet influencers, media, powerful people, creative people)
Connect us with other people who might be willing to help (Including volunteers who might want to stay for a short or longer time in Iceland or Switzerland)
Connect us with scientists, academics
Look up some of the
Do Laundry
Deep clean
Forward our messages / websites to all your contacts
Some other suggestions

These are the issues we are concerned with:

To stop the new Hitler
To have the response to Covid investigated
Affordable housing without subsidies (To give the youth of this world a chance)
To fight corruption
To inform people about modern day Ponzi schemes like cryptocurrencies
To recreate a world where people are not robbed of their savings
To make education available for everyone

If you are NOT serious about volunteering DO NOT book this category.

This is not a cheap place to stay except for true volunteers.

If it works out well in the Swiss mountains you could choose to transfer to our magical place Washistu.Casa in Rif, Iceland
