Camphill communities are "staffed" by people who choose the tasks and the lifestyle for a short time or for a life time. Called "co-workers" to acknowledge their role of working alongside people with disabilities or with other social needs, these staff are volunteers who make a commitment to the Camphill work. Although financial arrangements vary from country to country and community to community, Camphill co-workers are not jobholders in the traditional sense. They are people who have decided to live, however briefly, in a world where the dominant values are learning from others, practicing awareness, and appreciating and protecting the natural world.
