Volunteering is an essential aspect of Camphill life, as it allows us to value the work we do independently from the money we receive through residential fees.
As a volunteer we work together with people with special needs in the garden, the food processing workshop or in the house. volunteers build up personal relationships with the people they are working and living with. As Camphill Jerpoint is a life sharing community we share work, meals and fun and relaxation with the residents and day attenders and other volunteers.
We also call Volunteers Co workers. There are long term co workers who live in the Community for 2 or more years and there are short term co workers (gap volunteers) who come for study placements or a social year abroad, either through sending organisations or they apply privately.
Volunteers are provided with board and lodging some pocket money and holiday money. Volunteers coming for 1 year will have 5 weeks holidays, those coming for shorter time will have less.
