Volunteer opportunities

Live you dream - Volunteer at Our Chalet!

Volunteering at Our Chalet offers you the chance to meet Guides and Scouts from around the world, live in Switzerland, gain new life skills and practical working experience, enjoy the outdoor lifestyle in beautiful Alps, make friends for life, have endless laughs and lots of fun while living your dream!

Volunteer positions are available during all four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) and vary in length and responsibilities. We have Short term positions of only a few weeks to six months positions such as an Our Chalet Assistant or Intern.

Seasonality plays the most important part regarding the activities available and numbers of visitors at Our Chalet which reflect in the tasks and responsibilities of staff.

Our Chalet has four types of volunteer opportunities. For more details and application forms please follow the links:

I would have never trade this volunteer experience for anything in the world! I have learned so much about who I am. It has made me more determined to accomplish what I would like to and to reach the goals I have set.

Carey Hofner, winter volunteer at Our Chalet


Working at Sangam is an adventure of self-discovery – immersing yourself in Indian culture, working, living and socializing with the international staff, being embraced by the world friendship of Guiding – I feel like I can only but come away from here a better, more tolerant person.
