We are trying to create a true home away from home for travelers and volunteers.
We prepare meals each morning and throughout the week to bring people together as family, we run exciting and fun activities throughout San Diego to make sure everyone is seeing the city to its fullest and having the time of their life here! We do housekeeping and reception to make sure that we provide a safe, clean environment for everyone to call home, including the volunteer staff!

Volunteering is 25 hours a week doing both housekeeping and reception shifts. In the off hours, volunteers run activities and help cook, just like a normal family. Activities range from pub crawls, to Tijuana trips, surfing lessons and sailing boat tours! We expect that everyone that volunteers with us is here to experience something new, to travel, to explore and to have a blast! So we try and ensure this work/volunteer time is one that every volunteer will look back on as one of the greatest experiences of their travelling life!

Are you excited to run activities? Are you happy to speak and greet every new person you meet?

These are volunteer expectations, so we just want to make sure you like the idea of being really involved, having an absolute blast and being one of the friendliest people in the world… because that’s what we pride our company on, being a home away from home!So if the idea of being fun and friendly all the time seems awful, you probably won’t like it here . We’re looking for the best volunteers, so that you and our guests will have an unforgettably amazing time here in San Diego!Please send a return email answering our questions below so that we can gather an idea about you!
