Thesis about volunteering on the Camino

I would like to walk the Camino after Covid-19.
Hi!

My name is Fatime Kepka and I am a hungarian student. I am attending a hungarian university in Budapest and I am writing my thesis about motivations and expectations of volunteers on the Camino. I made a questionnaire for the volunteers. Please, if you are/were a volunteer on the Camino fill it out, so I can finish my thesis. You need about 10 minutes to do it.

Here is the link in english:

And in spanish:

Thank you so much for your help!

Fatime :)

Very interesting and not prying with personal questions. I hope you post the results of your thesis.

I am not going to attend your study, but here is my simple take on it:

Last May/June I was 2 weeks a volunteer in the Pilgrim's office in Santiago. Very rewarding for me to serve there. I will do it again in a heartbeat. Will also easily volunteer in certain albergues if asked to do so.

Why?

Payback time; giving back a little of what my many Camino(s) have given to me throughout many years. Just my mindset: Easy, natural & rewarding.

Hola @fatimekepka , Had this COVID19 not interfered I would have been able to answer your questionnaire.
However as I have not been a Camino Volunteer I feel I can not answer "honestly". I will say this - the reasons I applied to be a volunteer were to "give back" to my fellow pilgrims and the people of Spain and to use the opportunity to improve my Spanish. Best of luck with your thesis. Oh and yes it would be very much appreciated if you could publish a summary of the survey results. Cheers

Same as Alex. I was a volunteer in the Pilgrims Office in August 2019 for two weeks. It was an exceptional opportunity to serve/give back to the Camino for all it has given me. This forum/the pilgrims...a very neat group of humanity. Serve/Give/Grow.

Hello Fetima, I am glad that you believed me.

Like I told you, in this forum you would find the best answers, from the best pilgrims, the most enthusiastic and those most willing to help in anything related to the Camino de Santiago. It is the best forum in the world, sure!.

The albergues are closed, but the Camino is still open at the Forum Ivar.

Good luck with your thesis - survey submitted. Made me think again about my experiences both on the Camino and volunteering and the overall joy of meeting so many pilgrims - thank you all.
