About the Project
The Abraham Jerusalem hostel is a new travel-center located in the center of Jerusalem; the hostel is dedicated to the promotion and execution of ecological travel, and a fun and dynamic hostel environment. Volunteers are needed to help with the ongoing initiatives and to think of their own, as they will become an integral part of the hostel staff.
Volunteer Work and Contribution
As a volunteer you will be involved in several important tasks. Some of these include "chaperoning" groups of tourists to and from the daily walking tour offered by the hostel, leading informal hikes and walks along the Jerusalem trail, helping to plan and promote social initiatives within the hostel facilities (including but not limited to, pub nights, lectures, yoga or meditation groups etc.), and urgently implementing a recycling and organic waste/compost project at the hostel. Volunteers may also be needed to help in the hostel kitchen to serve tourists.
