Great Question. I have volunteered two years in a row now for the albergue Beilari in St Jean. It has been a great experience. That is another possibility. Curious to see the answers to volunteering at the Pilgrim´s Office. Also did two stints at the big Pilgrim´s Office in Santiago. Beilari has a new facebook page. Check it out.

Hi sorry I was on holiday,
To be volunteers at SJPP Pilgrim Office is required :
1 Be walked the way
2 You have to speak french and one other language (English - Spanish or some other)
3 You work only one week from monday to next monday
4 The office is open all year long but we need volunteers especially from April to October
5 Your daily work consists in helping and reassuring the pilgrims who begin his way
6 In the house of the pilgrim office we have rooms for the volunteers and we give you the breakfast and the lunch. The volunteer must pay for his trip.
7 I start to prépare the schedule 2020 in October. You have to mail me before and I will send you a document.

Maybe see you soon. Best regards
