Free room and board with WWOOF, HelpX or WorkAway

Your funds are running low and you need to stretch your budget? Volunteer for room and board! You will work for a few hours a day and you won’t have to pay a cent for accommodation and meals. For non-native speakers, it’s also a great way to practise your English before entering the job market.

The main three volunteer work networks are:

  • WWOOF (homestays on organic farms)
  • HelpX (with more work options, such as volunteer opportunities on farms, backpacker hostels, lodges, horse stables, etc.)
  • WorkAway (like HelpX, a wide range of opportunities)

Not all volunteer opportunities will be on remote farms in the Outback, especially with HelpX and Workaway. You could be asked to supervise children, help a senior citizen, help renovate a house, share your designer or web developer skills, perform the daily housekeeping in a hostel, work as a landscaper, manage studio apartments, teach a language, tutor kids after school… So, there are plenty of options if you’d rather stay in a city or a suburban area.

Tip: if you’re looking for an urban setting, use the keyword “inner city” when you’re searching for opportunities.
