Worldwide Friends (WF), was founded in 2001 as a non-profit organization promoting nature and peace-oriented activities for volunteers wanting to spend some time in Iceland. Our main theme for this year is to give education about the 17 Sustainable Goals of the United Nations and to clean the whole coastline of Iceland. The main activities that we offer are workcamps, seminars, local events, and exchange programs suitable both for young people and adults.

Work: Driver: pick off/ drop off volunteers from/to city center/airport/camp. Grocery shopping (for large groups). Drive the volunteers to work & excursions. Select locations for Beach Cleanups. Vehicle maintenance: Make sure the cars are in optimum conditions. Keep track of service records, oil changes, mileage, and fuel tracking. House Caretaker: Your activities include, but are not limited to; Basic repairs and maintenance tasks as required, or supervising others in these roles. Supervising the cleaning teams. Coordinating daily activities. Cooking; only when is required, etc., while creating a safe environment for everyone. You will travel around Iceland, as our houses are located at various sites across the island. We’re all about flexibility: we expect you to adapt to changes quickly and we encourage you to try new things. The work will depend on weather conditions, which is why we must be flexible. You should be prepared for unfriendly weather, as they say: if you don’t like the Icelandic weather, just wait 5 minutes it might change. Working hours may vary depending on the workcamps and the organization s needs. However, you will have 2 days off per week. And will be able to discover Iceland s unique sites. When required by the organization you will be required to lead camps, welcome participants, and/ or explain the program to the groups.

Accomodation and food: During the workcamps the leaders will share a double and quadruple room in a house fully equipped. Beds are provided, however, volunteers should bring their own warm sleeping bags. Food is provided and everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. We provide a well-balanced and healthy variety of food products that includes a wide variety of whole grains, seasonal fruits & vegetables, pantry staples, dairy products, and vegetarian/vegan options.

Location: OnthemovearoundIceland

Location and Leisure: Excursions include unique Icelandic sights, such as waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, lava forests, hot springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam vents, or even icebergs. We will also concentrate on intercultural learning and exchange. Every evening, volunteers from different countries will be in charge of presenting their country of origin and culture in an informal way. It can be a presentation, a game, theatre – the form of introduction is up to you! Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, photos, or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening amongst other volunteers. This program gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues, and intercultural learning. The area around the houses is also great for hiking. Plan ahead, share your travel plans, stay on the trail, properly dispose of waste, leave areas as you found them, and do not approach or feed wildlife. Don t go for high and steep mountains without a professional guide.
