Typical Volunteer

Our volunteers travel to Patagonia from all over the world and have different personal, educational and professional backgrounds, yet share a common interest in sustainability and the great outdoors. Most are gap year travelers, university students or recent graduates looking for an adventure in the wilds of Patagonia and the opportunity to learn hands-on, beyond the confines of the typical classroom, and be a part of something larger than themselves.
