Our youth hostels offer everyone the opportunity to do voluntary work with us. Voluntary work has the advantage of offering numerous and varied tasks, so that you can really feel part of the family in the hostel where you are hosted. In exchange for a few hours of work each week, you will receive accommodation, food and laundry services, in a lively environment with plenty of opportunities to meet new people!
Here is a non-exhaustive list of what volunteers may be involved in at Youth Hostels:
Working in the bar or restaurant;
Logistics at special events (concerts, exhibitions, etc.);
… and much more.
If you are dynamic, motivated and a good all-rounder, don’t waste another minute: come and join us! For more information (duration, tasks, voluntary work agreement, etc.) and to submit your application, contact the Youth Hostel of your choice directly, by visiting the contact page.
Please note! Some Youth Hostels have specific requirements regarding voluntary work. Feel free to contact them in advance to avoid any disappointments:
