Expectations from Volunteers

We expect volunteers to actively participate in assigned tasks, follow instructions, and contribute to a positive and inclusive environment. They should demonstrate reliability, flexibility, and a willingness to learn.

Volunteers can expect a rewarding experience where they can make a meaningful impact. We provide opportunities for personal and professional growth, cultural exchange, and the chance to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Hutan Subur. Basic accommodations and meals are provided during the volunteer period.

Special Equipment for Volunteers

While basic equipment and supplies will be provided, volunteers are encouraged to bring personal items such as comfortable clothing, sturdy shoes, and toiletries. Any specific requirements will be communicated prior to their arrival.

Specific tasks

One of the main tasks at the guest house for our coordinator will be to educate and support our staff to provide high quality service at our guest house for both guests and volunteers.
