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

 

You benefit from a serious decrease in the price and have the option of becoming a member of the Zhelen community.

 

The WORKAWAY VOLUNTEERS are free of charge.

 

We still ask the OTHER volunteers to sustain their food, accommodation and overheads (see prices below).

 

In exchange of their work we provide them free time, integral theory course and practical activities in the main directions which are:


• Approaches and dimensions in the integrated system;
• Natural medicine and prevention;
• Ecology and ecological agriculture;
• Psychology and pedagogy;
• Economics;
• Informatics;
• Languages;
• Arts;
• Some others...


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.
