Volunteer Opportunity: Schumacher College
About this opportunity
Dartington Learning hosts a small residential volunteer team with a twin focus of taking care of our participants and the learning environment while developing volunteers’ own enquiries relating to the values and aims of Dartington Learning. Volunteers work alongside staff to take care of course participants through the provision of sound, clean accommodation and good food.
As Dartington increases the proportion of food grown on site, volunteers assist the kitchen and garden teams with food preservation and storage, growing, harvesting and pasteurising.
We encourage volunteers to be active participants in the learning community and to take opportunities to attend course sessions, talks and other activities that are open to the learning community.
The voluntary role here at Dartington Learning is highly valued. It is physically demanding. Gardening is involved as well as moving of heavy objects. If you feel you may have any issues in performing any tasks or wish to discuss this in confidence with us please note this in your written application.
Residential volunteers often participate in activities up to five days per week. Volunteer placements are usually for a minimum of one month and preference is given to people who are able to commit to 3 months or longer.
Volunteer opportunities for this position are currently full and we are operating a waiting list. Please complete the below form and we’ll contact you when opportunities become available.
