Coordinators Alexandros Centre
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.
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.
