Volunteering with GEN International
In the GEN International office in Findhorn, Scotland we are always happy to receive volunteers. We often need support in areas such as fundraising, IT, communications, administration, logistics, and assistance with the running of projects, workshops, and conferences. It may also be possible to remotely help in areas like translation and editing.
GEN also offers internships, this requires a longer-term commitment of minimum 5 months, preferably 6-12. We generally accept no more than 1-2 interns at a time. All of GEN International’s interns and volunteers find or provide their own funding for travel and living costs. For those who need financial support, we suggest checking with Erasmus+ European Voluntary Service (EVS) to see if you are eligible.
The office is based in the Findhorn Foundation Community. There are a number of opportunities for GEN interns and volunteers to engage with the community. This includes serving in departments, permaculture, cooking, dancing, singing, various courses, and networking with like-minded people who are passionate about living harmoniously with each other and the planet.
