BECOME A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY
The community operates on a volunteering model. Every person who joins, forms the community for the duration of their stay. Whether they are a long term committed community member who takes on a role or a short-term training participant, ideally every person bears joint responsibility for ensuring the smooth running of the daily tasks of administration, housekeeping, catering and hospitality. Volunteers pay a small contribution at the beginning of their stay with the possibility of moving into a work exchange agreement dependent of the needs of the community at the time.
As a volunteer you can stay between 2 weeks and 5 months. We ask for a contribution of Euro 90/week to cover costs. Depending on your life circumstances and interest, it is possible to grow into a more permanent and more responsible volunteer role in which case we offer work-exchange
Facilitator in Residence
Being a Facilitator in Residence is the perfect option for those who want to offer their skills without running a fully scheduled workshop, and combine this with a living-in-community experience and holiday.
Over the years, our FIRs have offered various types of self-development sessions, art therapy, voice and singing sessions, thai chi, chi gong, gestalt therapy, massages, theater, dance, aromatherapy, sessions on creative writing, astrology, sociocracy, coaching and group facilitation.
You can stay with us as a live-in community guest without attending a scheduled workshop. This can be a fulfilling and transformative experience. It can be a great opportunity to experience intentional authentic community living. You can take part in the daily sharing circles where you will learn about the tools we use for deep sharing and creating an environment of acceptance where we refrain from judgements.

Alexandros is run by and as a full community comprising the unpaid volunteer staffers and guests. You’ll be joining the cooking team once in the week, and helping with clean up or gardening. The work is not onerous, 6-7 hr in the week. This makes our programs more affordable and helps us build community together.
Stay longer than just a week
Our very affordable (from €39o) Living-in-Community program welcomes you to stay on a week before or after your retreat to relax and fully enjoy this special unspoiled region of Greece.
