This work includes sailing, upkeeping the dinghies, painting, cutting grass, cleaning, guiding tourists, helping in our café, upkeeping campsite and various gear. We also learn from our volunteers. The volunteers add further life and energy to the center which is highly valued. Øhavets Smakke- og Naturcenter is open all around the year.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements:
The volunteer will stay with a local Danish host family and will be expected to become part of the family and as such take part in the activities and responsibilities in the family. If we do not find a host family it can be that the volunteer will be placed at the Øhavets Smakkecenter.
The volunteer must like being outdoor as most of the activities at the center are outdoor activities. A big part of the job is to be with the students at the boarding school, so good social skills are highly required. The volunteer must be open-minded and prepared to be involved in all the various tasks together with the rest of the staff. The volunteer must be able to speak English at a conversational level.
