Volunteering in an albergue

wanderlust1

New Member
We are 3 Americans, a mother and twin 17-year olds, looking for a volunteer opportunity in an albergue in Spain. I am a physical therapist with knowledge of first aid and basic medical care. I speak some German and French. The twins speak fairly good Spanish, and would like to volunteer as a high school graduation project. We have walked from SJPP > Santiago > Finisterre in 2009. We do not have the formal confraternity training. Can anyone recommend an albergue in a Spanish town along the Camino Frances which does not require the training, but would also treat us fairly? Thanks!

Pick up a Red Albergues list on the Camino - or download one from their website - and check out the albergues along the way. http://www.redalberguessantiago.com

You can offer your help directly to the refuge - a list can be found at http://www.jacobeo.net/. Be aware that many of these are private businesses that might love to have two weeks´ free labour! The choice is yours, but don’t be exploited.

Private albergues:

You can, of course, volunteer at a private albergue. Many are run on a commercial, for profit basis and would be delighted to have you, with our without proof of training, as free labour!
Some of the older, more traditional albergues are worth considering even though they are private.

Here are some of the better known albergues on the camino frances:
