Volunteer Opportunities

Live your dream - Volunteer at Our Chalet!

Due to the impact of the pandemic, WAGGGS has made the difficult decision to cease activities at all its World Centres in 2021. Therefore Our Chalet is not able to accept any new volunteer applications at this time. Check back here or on our social media pages for details of when applications open for opportunities in 2022.

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 work experience, enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in the beautiful Alps, make friends for life, have endless laughs and lots of fun, all while living your dream!

We have positions from just a few weeks to six months. Free full board and lodging is provided for all our volunteers.

Please note : If you are outside of the EU, Swiss visa rules mean you must be aged under 35 at the time of volunteering and have not previously had a volunteer visa for Switzerland.

There is no upper age limit for volunteers holding an EU passport. The minimum age for all volunteers is 18 years.

I would 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.
