HELLO, helpers from around the world!
Looking for food for the MIND, BODY and SOUL?
Traveling the world and need a place to RESET?
Searching for the REAL you? Studying online courses and need NEW scenery?
Wanting to connect with NATURE? Need CREATIVE impulses?
Or just looking to meet PEOPLE from allover the world in a CALM atmosphere where the mountains meet one of Italy's most pristine lakes?
Then come help us at CENTRO D’OMPIO located in northern Italy, with a stunning view of the picturesque Lago d’Orta and a short walk from a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’re located in the green hills, right by the village of Pratolungo. Surrounded by trees, plants, cats and peafowl, with the lake and the wild mountains as a breathtaking backdrop.

For decades we’ve been fortunate to have helpers from across the world come here and be a part of our team, and together we’ve ensured that CENTRO D’OMPIO has developed into one of the leading international seminar centers. We’re known worldwide for our hospitality, joy and creativity.

Each month, our small core staff welcomes between 6 – 12 helpers with different backgrounds, various ages, skills and nationalities to be part of our daily operation.

You’ll get:

FREE HOUSING (Nice warm showers!)

Lodging is provided in our volunteer house, Casa Bisetti, a rustic, charming Italian farmhouse, just a fifteen minutes walk through the village and between a few farms from CENTRO D’OMPIO. At Casa Bisetti the rooms are shared, varying in sizes.

Together we’ll work in areas such as:


Among our frequent clients, we find groups offering YOGA, MEDITATION, CONSCIOUSNESS TRAINING. If the schedule allows it, you can participate in these workshops. We also have a SWIMMING POOL that is absolutely refreshing on hot summer days.

You'll work on a 5-5 schedule, five days a week for five hours. The rest of the time is yours.

We are looking for people interested in starting from july and throughout the 2020 season.

This is brief idea of what you'll have here (made by one of our best working guests):

Interested? Of course you are.
Questions? We'll answer them.

Send us a short bio and you'll hear back from us shortly!
