Volunteer

We believe in what is done with passion!

 

What is it about?

The hostel running period articulates three main activities :
– a special hosting, give a unique experience for every guest to feel at home.
– a strong online presence, to spread the word and connect widely.
– an innovative home care, for everything related to the property’s look, vibes and facilities.
Volunteering with us during this period is a way to get highly involved with the project, participate to its shared vision and exercise your skills for the common manifestation of the collective dream.

Let’s co-create

No Name Free Hostel is about expressing your freedom through co-creation: embody the soul of the project and contribute to the vision in your unique way.

Volunteering at the hostel requires the ability to work with focused mind, in a team as well as individually, while understanding the place & time requirements. It also implies an extraordinary human experience in a magical place, among what will soon become the members of an extended family.

To hold the team all together we prefer strong roots to a rigid frame, here are the directing principles of life in community, as we understand it :

ROOT PRINCIPLES

  1. The community and the vision it manifests being our reason to be there
  2. Thinking, speaking, doing with pure & good intentions
  3. Taking responsibilities and working within the imparted time
  4. Always respecting who and what is around you
  5. Representing the community core and its principles during the whole volunteering period
