The activities require constant contact with nature; this means that the volunteer will be finding himself/herself using physical strength and getting his/her hands dirty to get the job done. It is good to know and understand that you can encounter rain, sun, mud and insects. In addition, to carry out the activities it is necessary to walk the different trails, which have steep slopes. Therefore, volunteers should be in good health and willing to walk the different trails.
The water heater depends on the availability of gas, which is brought down to the hostel from time to time. On some occasions, hot showers might not be available. But in general there is hot water available.
The volunteers’ house has limited Wi-Fi (because there is only satellite internet in this remote area). It may only be used for basic needs, such as communication (some calls, messages, mails) and information (research, press), but not for large downloads, videos, streaming (music or movies), video calls, etc.
Working with the children in the park requires a high level of commitment and empathy. We are not looking for teachers, we are looking for people who understand that children are responsible for their learning process, and who want to accompany them in their explorations and self-directed learning.
Volunteers with physical, intellectual and psychosocial disabilities are welcome but the natural conditions of the park and the terrain may represent a risk or difficulty for the volunteer. This will be discussed during the interview.
