We are a real non-profit organisation registered with the French government. We operate our projects as an open community of responsible citizens. We are independent and self-sustained. We do not offer jobs here, only volunteer experience in an authentic "learning-by-doing" social-entrepreneurship project dedicated to common good. There are two places where you can apply with us: Hello Marseille "Guesthouse" and Hello Marseille "Sharehouse". Check the "Join-us" page on our website for information.

As a knowledge based community, we are looking to share our time and energy with serious persons who are themselves really motivated by "soft transition" matters. We don't ask for specific diplomas or experience, but for a serious motivation, maturity and a peaceful mind. Usually we prefer persons who have an interest in humanities like anthropology, sociology, psychology etc… or who want to get involved into sustainable development learning the necessary skills and concepts.

Hello Marseille can become your home away from home to experiment sustainable development and community building. Located in the very center of Marseille, in the famous "Vieux Port" area. It's a safe and lively surrounding close to pubs, historical places and 7 min bike from the beach.

If you are a young traveller/student, self-motivated, self-responsible and with good social skills you can join our reception team for several months in Marseille and later get involved in many other projects we develop. You can also enjoy being in the oldest city of France to learn French and discover the great nature we have around.

Note: beware that if you don't come in a genuine spirit of contributing to common good project, it will not fit. We are not like places focused only on freedom, we also ask you for real responsibility sharing within your team.


Here are the different legal statuses we manage to get sometimes for our volunteers. We try to promote the ones that will give each person the best conditions. If you are able to have one of this statute, or If you have or hear of better solutions, let us know.
