Our Volunteering is Different
Our volunteer program is different because we are a community cooperative. We are all united in our support of volunteers, and providing you with a variety of mutually-beneficial volunteer, educational, and leisure activities.
If you want to work on the organic coffee plantation with Sebastian one day, and work in the artisan shop with Mariana the next day, you can.
If you want to learn to make cheese, or cook an Ecuadorian dinner, we will connect you with Hermenia, the town chef.
If you want to take the day off and go on a hike or go bird watching, we will provide you with an experienced guide.
We are different because - as a community cooperative - your time and donation in Las Tolas directly benefits the entire community and our reforestation efforts. The entire community is dedicated to helping you get the most out of your volunteer experience.
The community group in Las Tolas are known under this banner and, in addition to hosting you as volunteers, work to the benefit of the community.
They will run a "minga" to plant new trees, clear up rubbish, build a new section of their community kitchen and hub or celebrate an occasion in the village.
Come and join our families to experience the warmth, friendship and community spirit of Las Tolas.
Cecilia, Edgar, Rosario, Salomon, Gloria, Oliva, Sebastian, Pila, Santiago and their families are looking forward to welcoming you!
