16 Rewarding VolunTourism Travel Jobs That Need Valuable Volunteers

Information Correct? 

VolunTourism Travel Jobs offers an entry-level opportunity for paid travel! 

VolunTourism is an excellent opportunity for Backpackers, Budget Travelers, and Wanderlusts. VolunTourism allows us to visit Events economically! 

This is the first of a series of Travel Job article resources. The work here represents 2 months of solid research. Our goal is to deliver a traveler resource that is high quality and thorough. 

VolunTourism is the arrangement between a Host and a Travel Guest. This arrangement is beneficial for both parties. 

  • The Host provides accommodations such as lodging or lodging + meal(s). 
  • The Travel Guest provides working time & skill. 

VolunTourism is a hybrid word consisting of Volunteer + Tourism. The term meaning is self-explanatory. The Travel Guest: Volunteer for half of the day, and Tourism for the other half of the day. 

The article is from the Travel Guest perspective. In saying this, both the Host and the Traveler Guest are here. Each side has a better understanding of the other party. 

The interaction may broaden our cultural and linguistic understanding. We may learn and grow from each other. 

The Host and Travel Guest may become friends and even extended family!

Equal VolunTourism

Equal Parts support one another

This prologue section praises the good nature of VolunTourism! Event Butterfly celebrates this global achievement! 

We wish equal VolunTourism continues for many years, decades, and centuries to come! 

An equal VolunTourism arrangement is where the Host and Travel Guest are mutual. Both parties have equal values.

The straightforward answer to expectations: 

  • The Host offers lodging and or lodging + meal(s). 
  • The Travel Guest offers 20 hours per week (5 days a week at 4 hours per day). 

This may be all the information you need in this section. 

Please feel free to skip down to the Travel Guest Occupation.
Or go straight to the Hosts

Let’s explore an equal VolunTourism arrangement in full detail. 

A VolunTourism arrangement may be more complex if more variables are present. 

An equal VolunTourism agreement may actually be between 15 – 30 work hours per week. The work could be 5 days per week, at 3 – 6 hours per day. 

These work hours may fluctuate with the value of the Host in contrast to the Value of the Travel Guest.

Host Accommodation Variables: 

  • Are the accommodations larger or smaller than expected? 
  • What are the room dimensions? 
  • Is the room private or shared? 
  • Is the bathroom private or shared? 
  • What are the bathroom dimensions? 
  • How many meals per day,… 1, 2, or 3 ? 
  • What other accommodations are available?

Travel Guest variables: 

  • Is the Travel Guest more or less skilled in that occupation? 
  • Does the Travel Guest take on more work responsibility? 

The question may arise on, “Am I receiving a fair VolunTourism arrangement?” Uncertainty may happen before, during, and/or after entering into a VolunTourism arrangement. 

May we present a general method to measure the values? 

Please use your best judgment. Event Butterfly developed this method using public resources and then applying those resources. 

It is better to have a method in place, and not use it. Rather than needing a technique and not having one. Yet, should one need a technique, it is here for you. 

Included are the Value resources that are excellent for both parties. 

  • Host Accommodation Values 
  • Travel Guest Occupational Values 

Hosts and Guests may understand their value, along with their counterparts’ value. 

Should you know of a better method, please share it with our Group!

Host Value

Aerial View of a unique Host Accommodation

Numbeo is an excellent website for the monetary Value of lodging Worldwide. 

The site displays what a one-bedroom would cost all over the world. The cost is the average rental per month. The map features a currency selector. 

The Host may also calculate their meal costs. 

Finally, the total value of the lodging or lodging + meals. 

Table Of Contents

Travel Guest Value

Life,… a Meandering Path,… filled with Wonder and Excitement

Numbeo has a “Ranking by Country of the Average Monthly Net Salary”. Travel Guests may use this resource. Calculate their adjusted salary while within the Host country. 

International VolunTourism may need us to readjust our occupation value. A foreign local job market may be a Value that is different from home. 

Calculate a ratio. Take the Salary of the Host country, and divide it by the Travel Guest country. This is the ratio to determine our Travel Guest Value in a foreign country. 

We will do an example of this soon below in the VolunTourism Arrangement Example.  

(Wikipedia also has a useful “List of Countries by Average Wage”).

Next, we look at specific occupations. 

BLS (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics) contains the United States occupational data. 

BLS classifies 800 Occupations! BLS lists these Occupations in two resources for our VolunTourism needs. 

BLS OOH (Occupational Outlook Handbook) contains informative videos or images on those occupations. 

Listed is the wage hourly and annually. The wage is 50% median pay. This average value is a good starting position for U.S. VolunTourism. 

BLS OEWS (Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics) contains an in-depth wage range. You may or may not need this. 

Here is additional relevant advice for Travel Guests.

  • Protect yourself with Event Butterfly Digital Wallet strategies.
  • Travel Insurance is highly recommended.
  • Check the latest Travel Advisory with the United States, Department of the State:

Travel Guest Occupation

Crystal Ball of Future Opportunity

Travel Guests may fulfill any number of VolunTourism occupations. 

Here are the most common occupations requested by Hosts globally. 

Major occupation categories organize the occupations. The major occupation categories are the most common to least common. Or the most general to the most specialized occupation. 

The most common major occupation category is Sustenance. Sustenance as in Food & Beverage. Every Host type needs Food & Drink for survival. Hosts may request a Cook. 

The most specialized occupation is Education. Education is very important. Yet it is a very specialized occupation category for a select Host. A Host NGO, Host Community, Host School, Host Camp, or even a Host Home Stay School, may all need an Educator.

Each Occupation Category lists the individual Occupations. The  Occupation order is of highest wage value to lowest wage value, according to the BLS.


  • This VolunTourism Occupation list is not all-encompassing / not exhausted. Specific Hosts may request an unlisted occupation.
  • Event Butterfly has omitted to report Occupation Values. Time and Inflation will flux these monetary VALUES. The most current  Occupation Values are available at OOH and OEWS.

Equal VolunTourism Example

An arrangement of the Host and of the Travel Guest

Let’s illustrate this in a hypothetical VolunTourism example. 

Our arrangement is between a New Zealand Host and a visiting United States Travel Guest. 

The Host has a one-bedroom with a bath accommodation available. The Host needs a Housekeeper, Cook, and Grounds Maintenance. 

The Travel Guest will be visiting for a one-week stay. The Travel Guest has agreed to work as a Cook, in exchange for the Host accommodation. 

The Host

  • Numbeo shows the Host Value of the lodging. 
  • $1,030 USD is the rent for a New Zealand one bedroom per month, (at the time of this publication).
  • $1,030 USD divided by 30 days… 
  • $34.33 USD per day is the Host accommodation value. 
  • Or $240 USD per week is the Host accommodation value. $34.33 USD per day, multiplied by 7 days, equals $240 USD per week. 
  • (Travel Guests, be sure to inquire about Host extended stay lodging discounts. Hosts may offer a 10% discount if staying a week or more and… 25% discount if staying a month or more.) 

The Travel Guest

  • Numbeo shows the Travel Guest Value of the average monthly salary. 
  • Each country may or may not have its version of our BLS resource. So we do a few math conversions. 
  • $2,679 USD is the average monthly salary in New Zealand, (at the time of this publication).
  • $3,630 USD is the average monthly salary in the United States (at the time of this publication).
  • Divide the lower number $2,679, into the higher number $3,630. 
  • 0.73 or 73% is our exchange rate!  
  • This means that an Occupation salary in New Zealand is 73%. 
  • OOHOEWS :  Cook, says it is at a $14.43 USD hourly wage, (at the time of this publication). 
  • Multiply the $14.43 USD of a United States Cook, into the 0.73 New Zealand exchange rate. 
  • $10.53 USD hourly wage is a fair value for the Travel Guest working as a Cook in New Zealand.

The Arrangement

  • $240 USD per week is the value of the Host accommodations. 
  • $10.53 USD hourly wage is the value of the Travel Guest. 
  • 22 hours per week the Travel Guest is to work as a Cook, in exchange for the Host accommodations. (Little more than the standard 20 hours per week). 

The Alternative Arrangement with a Meal Plan 

  • The New Zealand Host also offers two Meals per day. 
  • The Travel Guest accepts two meals per day. 
  • $45 USD per week will cover the cost of the meals.
  • The original $240 USD per week for lodging + the extra $45 USD for meals. 
  • $285 USD is the adjusted Host accommodation value. 
  • $10.53 USD hourly wage is the value of the Travel Guest. 
  • 27 hours per week the Travel Guest is to work as a Cook, in exchange for the Host accommodations. (Little more than the standard 20 hours per week). 

We are repeating it… 

An equal VolunTourism agreement may be between 15 – 30 work hours per week. The work could be 5 days per week, at 3 – 6 hours per day. 

These work hours may fluctuate with the value of the Host in contrast to the Value of the Travel Guest. 

Remember we are practicing VolunTourism. We are first a Volunteer for half of the day. We are second a Tourist for the other half of the day. 

Also, remember the BLS is on the US Dollar currency. 

See the Event Butterfly Currency Exchange for International Travel. 


Hosts World Wide

Followed by the “Host” type. Each type of Host is specific and diverse from the next. Host sponsorship types from around the world! Hosts come in many forms and many settings! 

The Host types are also in sequence. 

We begin with the Host that offers the most. The most volume of VolunTourism opportunities, with the most occupation categories and occupations. There may be dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of Volunteers! 

We finish with the Host type that offers the most specific. The most specific VolunTourism narrowed to one occupation. There is an opening for a solo Travel Guest. 

Each Host type lists the necessary:  

  • Host Perks 
    • The Host perk amenities are different based on the setting. Here are a few perk examples. (The Host perks of Lodging or Lodging and Food is a given, thus not listed.) 
      • A Pousada Staffer in Brazil may have access to the swimming pool.
      • A Farm Staffer may have access to healthy fresh-picked produce. 
      • A Camp Staffer may have access to the weekly excursion adventures.
  • Host VolunTourism Occupations

  • Host Job Advice
  • Host Locations & Booking 
  • Host Awards 
  • Host Awareness 
  • Host Stories
  • Host Video Resource
  • Host Investment Information 
  • Host See Also 

Hosts offer VolunTourism opportunities. A Host may permit or prohibit Visiting Travel Worker children and or pets.

NGO stands for Non-Governmental Organization. NGOs are international non-profit charity organizations that operate beyond the United States borders. 

NGO charities number in the tens of thousands. NGOs exist for every noble cause! 

Host NGOs offer every VolunTourism occupation classification and every occupation! So NGOs are first on our list of Host types.

Here are a few noble cause categories that NGOs focus on. 

Addiction Recovery • Animal • Cancer • Children • Civil • Consumer • Education • Environmental • FireFighter • Food • Gun • Health • Housing • Human • Hunger • International • LGBTQ+ • Mental • Peace • Police • Public • Senior • Veteran • Women • Youth.

The United Nations (U.N.) manages NGO identification and registration worldwide! 

  • The U.N. has identified approximately 40,000 NGOs in existence and operation!
  • The U.N. has registered approximately 10% of the total NGOs worldwide. There are approximately 4,000 U.N. registered NGOs! 

NGO resources originate from patron donations and fundraising activities. NGOs rely on Volunteer support to operate.

Host NGOs welcome Travel Guest VolunTourism. Host NGOs treat Volunteers very well. 

The Host NGO and Volunteer fundraising is then directed toward the noble cause. 

NGO Volunteering is a rewarding experience! Gain self-worth. Gain a wider global view perspective. The involvement demonstrates a level of maturity and is excellent on resumes.

Intentional Community 

Introducing an Eco Village (Ecological Village). 

An Eco Village is a type of Community pioneering the new World View of sustainability! Eco Village members practice sustainable methods of living. 

Host Eco Village Communities also need every VolunTourism classification and occupation. 

Sustainability equates to the Eco Village being self-reliant. The village does this through four aspects: Ecological • Economics • Social • Cultural 

PermaCulture principles are fundamental practices in an Eco Village. 

(See Eco Projects / PermaCulture Projects below for more information.) 

An Eco Village lives in harmony with Earth’s natural systems that forever loop. 

The Water loop and the Food loop are excellent examples to better explain. Both loops create the two sustenances that humans need to survive: Water & Food. 

Evaporation creates clean white water and rises as air moisture. Air moisture condensates. Condensation creates Rain. Rain falls. Rain collects on rooftops, harvested, and collected in cisterns. The water goes through filtration. Filtered clean white water is for drinking, bathing, washing, cleaning, and laundry. We make gray water. Gray water feeds the houseplants. (House plants provide fresh oxygen.) The houseplants filter the gray water. Filter cleaner gray water fills the toilets. We make and flush black water. Black water feeds exterior lawn plants and gardens. The exterior lawn plants and gardens filter the black water. Black water heats by the Sun and evaporates. Evaporation creates clean white water and rises as air moisture… The cycle forever loops.

The soil grows the garden. The garden grows the food vegetables. The vegetables provide sustenance. The vegetable waste composts. The compost creates soil. The soil grows the garden… The cycle forever loops.

Larger schools may request VolunTourism filled in every classification! 

Teachers are the difference in this world! A grateful student thinks the world of their Teacher! 

Improve educator roles, teaching styles, and curriculums. 

Deep thoughts on Education to share… 

We are all Students and we are all Teachers. We all learn and we all teach. 

Remember that when we teach, we teach twice. We teach our students, and we teach ourselves. So in this, our students learn, and we learn. 

The education relationship consists of a triad: School • Educator • Student. All learning and teaching each other.

  • School teaches and learns via the Educator and the Student. 
  • Educator teaches and learns via the Student and the School. 
  • Student teaches and learns via the School and the Educator. 

Students learn and keep the information the most when educators practice multisensory teaching. Multisensory engages the most senses available for that subject.  

Multisensory is the fast path to information retention. Information in the conscious mind travels to the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind possesses a second nature ability. 

Teaching and learning is a win-win-win for us all. Education is Truth. Truth sets us free!

The terms “Farm Stay” and “Farm Vacation” are important separate distinctions! 

  • A “Farm Stay” is an employment relationship. 
    • A “Farm Stay” Host seeks a Travel Guest for VolunTourism. 
    • A Travel Guest trades time and skills in exchange for Host amenities, as explained above. 
  • A “Farm Vacation” is a Tourist relationship. 
    • A “Farm Vacation” Host seeks a Tourist Guest Customer. 
    • Customer Guests pay for the lodging and amenities. 

BIG Difference! 

“Farm Vacation” is a new title, and continues to evolve. The tourist industry adopted the use of the title. 

A Farm Vacation resort offers farm lodging as an alternative lodging accommodation. Farm Lodging is at the Farm House, the Farm Guest House, or even the converted Barn! 

Expect a Farm Vacation Big Breakfast every morning! 

Farm Vacations offer working farm demonstrations to its Customer Guests and audiences. Farm demonstrations occur weekly and even daily! 

Farm Vacation resorts provide a sense of what it may be like to live and work on a farm. Customer Guests do not actually “labor” at the farm. 

Think of Farm Vacation as a Bed & Breakfast, placed on a Farm Homestead, with an Interactive Petting Zoo.

This trend of alternative lodging is growing…, especially in the United States.

A Farm Vacation is different from a Farm Stay. In saying that, a Farm Vacation may need Farm Stay VolunTourism workers to work the farm! So best to ask what is available?!

Hostels are international social hub lodging facilities. Guests come from every corner of the world! 

Hostels feature affordable dorm room lodging and food. Hostel lodging is a top choice for many budget travelers, students, and workers. 

Hostels are very familiar with VolunTourism! Hostels are a major platform for VolunTourism! 

  • Host Hostels post VolunTourism positions. 
  • Travel Guests inquire about VolunTourism positions upon arriving. 

Hostel lodging facilities vary in all different sizes, styles, and shapes. Some are large and spacious with a college dorm feel. While others are tiny and cozy small houses. 

Hostel lifestyle benefits: 

  • travel community of like-minded friends 
  • acceptance atmosphere 
  • shared resources and amenities 
  • meals 
  • daily activities 
  • social evening experiences
  • open dormitory-style rooms or private rooms 
  • affordable 

International Hostels exist in the tens of thousands! Hostels have a long history in Europe.

National Hostels exist only in the few hundred. Hostel travel is very different in the United States. 

How To Locate U.S. Hostels

  • HI USA Map is a good map resource to locate U.S. Hostels… and only Hostels!
  • Google Maps may result in a mixed bag of alternative lodging.

    Our results produced a mess of unnecessary lodging. Expensive Hotels, Inns, Resorts, Motels, and Bed & Breakfasts. Hostels are difficult to find.
    • Google Maps is Good. It searches an infinite amount of search themes. 
    • Google Maps is Bad. It searches an infinite amount of search themes.

A “Pousada” translates as a Portuguese Inn (Google Translate). 

The Pousada idea encompasses all types of Inns. Intimate Guest Houses, to rustic rural Bed & Breakfasts, to stylish urban resorts. All Pousadas have a warm welcome feel. 

A Pousada focuses much attention on the details. A Pousada setting sets the tone. 

A Pousada harmonizes its architecture, decor, art, crafts, styles, fashions, and gardens. 

Most important are the stunning gardens and farms. Pousada VolunTourism gardeners and lawn maintenance are in high demand! 

The Pousada idea began in Portugal and later enriched its Portuguese-speaking territories. The beauty of Pousadas is a part of Portuguese culture.

  • South America: Brazil. Brazil is the Pousada capital of the world! Brazil is home to thousands of Pousadas!
  • Africa: Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Cape Verde Islands, São Tomé and Príncipe Island.
  • Asia: Macao, and East Timor.

Sustainable Projects are continuous. Hence sustainable. 

Construction of Sustainable Projects is in Eco Villages and progressive Communities. Most impressive is that Sustainable Project awareness is happening. Positive action is on a steady rise. 

Sustainable Projects are progressing in many pockets of the world. Soon sustainability will be ubiquitous in the world! 

Sustainable Projects may need more construction, and or ongoing management and or maintenance. That means steady VolunTourism opportunities.  

The Sustainable Project trend is growing… and transitioning to mainstream life. We as a people of Earth are in a transitioning stage. 

We approve of natural systems of infinite renewable energy of solar and wind. We oppose the finite energies of oil and coal. 

We approve of Rainwater, the collection, harvesting, and filtering for our many needs. We oppose municipal water pumped through hundreds of kilometers of municipal pipelines. We oppose bottled water packaged on cross-continental ships. 

We approve of the Locavore Movement, a system that supports local food producers. We buy local or grow our vegetables. We oppose purchasing remote vegetables of the same variety when local is available.

PangeaBuilders – Fox HolePangeaBuilders – Todos Santos 

Welcome to the PermaCulture Project. It is a new World view! 

The PermaCulture ideal is sustainability, continuous and forever. PermaCulture is a whole-systems approach to land management. 

PermaCulture is a guide for people to redesign their communities. Align our management around our natural world. Thus we live in harmony with our natural world. 

PermaCulture is the top mindset of all Sustainable Projects. The topic is so diverse, that it deserves its VolunTourism subsection. 

PermaCulture is happening today throughout human culture. It is happening in rural agriculture and urban cities. 

Civil Engineers are creating the Towns and Cities of tomorrow. They are designing communities that are adaptable to a changing climate and environment. 

Contemporary PermaCulture encompasses Agriculture & Architecture. BioTecture is the creation of dwellings that work with the natural systems of the Earth. 

We continue gathering information. Then we use that as knowledge to gain wisdom. This affects us and has positive effects on the world around us. We continue to evolve. 

So too has the Permanent Agriculture continued to evolve. Today the term has evolved to a more comprehensive definition of “Permanent Culture”. 

Permanent Agriculture has grown globally. It is the most recognized truth to sustainability and tackling environmental challenges. It is the best model presented in the most recent 50+ years. 

PermaCulture History:

“Perma~Culture One. A Perennial Agriculture For Human Settlements” published in 1978. Agricultural authors Bill Mollison and David Holmgren wrote the book. Together they introduced the PermaCulture path to the world. 

Mollison and Holmgren explain PermaCulture practitioners: 

  • study all the natural systems 
  • understand those natural systems on the land 
  • install those natural systems to manage the land 

PermaCulture in its simplest terms involves those natural systems that support people: 

  • Land
  • Water
  • Air 
  • Life

PermaCulture is a comprehensive approach to all Earth’s regions: 

  • GeoSphere – the central cores
  • BioSphere – the crust where all living beings live 
  • AtmoSphere – air  
  • HydroSphere – water  
  • CryoSphere – ice at the polar caps 

Finally is the Permanent Agriculture eco zone model.  (The original book cover illustrates eco zones). It is one set of concentric circles that defines distinct land management. The model shows the amount of People’s activity on the land. More management as we visit the innermost circles. Less management as we visit the outermost circles. 

  • People (the center most circle) 
  • Zone 0 – the home (the most managed area of people).
  • Zone 1 – the home garden 
  • Zone 2 – the crops • food production 
  • Zone 3 – the large fruit tree cash crops 
  • Zone 4 – wild food and pastures (the least managed area of people) 
  • Zone 5 – wilderness • foraging • inspiration • meditation (unmanaged • managed by nature only)

Guest House VolunTourism Job Websites: 
WorldPackers – Guest House

Guest House Locations & Booking: 

A Guest House is part of the Hospitality industry. Yet a private family or individual owns this one accommodation. 

Guest House Hosts accept VolunTourism Guests. Check Guest House online profiles to see job availability. Open up a channel of conversation with the owner. 

Travel Guests are often young and or budget-minded. Guests need the privacy that a Hotel can deliver, with the affordability that a Hostel can offer. 

Guests sleep, commune, and eat together. Guest House communal rooms are smaller with a few bunk beds. 

The Guest House is a secondary house or home, available for Travel Guests. While the primary house or home is for the owner’s family or individual. 

The Guest House is separate from the primary house or home. Either the Guest House is a house or home completely on its own. Or a divider wall separates the Guest House and primary house or home. 

Owners style the Guest House how they chose. Guests get a sense of the owner’s taste in decor and local culture. 

Contrast the Guest House with every other hospitality accommodation. Corporation-owned hospitality accommodations are the majority. This includes Hotels, Hostels, Pousadas, and Bed & Breakfasts. 

A private Guest House is in the middle of the hospitality industry market. Thus a private Guest House is one accommodation unique in the hospitality industry.
