About the local hosting organizationMunicipality of Altea. De Amicitia is successfully cooperating with them for many years. This Muicipallity is investing in volunteering and alternative policies in environment, tourism and participation.
About the volunteer workWe need a volunteer or two to support our EVS who is supporting the Tourism Offcie in Altea displaying alternative proposals for visitors. There will be a lot of work to be done during Easter Holidays managing the touristic information from a non permanent office located in the old town. Volunteers will work shoulder with shoulder with our EVS. The last week there will be a workcamp on the same location, so there will be new people coming and will be nicer. There is a chance to stay more time in Altea if both sides agree. Volunteers are asked to give a deposit of 50,00 euro to guarantee that they will stay till the end of the project.
Local accommodationAccommodation will be in a refuge, in a simple summer house (antiguo matadero) in Cap Negret in Altea, where workcamps are taking place. Volunteers will buy the food at a local CO-OP supermarket using coupons from the Town Hall and cook for themselves on a gas cooker. Volunteers will sleep on bunk beds. Please bring a sleeping bag as it might be a bit chilly as weather is unpredictable.
