About the workproject

We need 8 volunteers

We are a start-up empowerment centre in Brazil looking to change the way people live their lives. We do this through the open-hearted, stimulating and supportive environment we create through the culture of our international team, but also through our empowerment programs which seek to give people the experience and practical tools to transform themselves and create their optimal way of life.

Our 75,000sqm of tropical forest, mountain, situated between a lake, river and sea makes for the perfect place to find exactly what you need. We try to produce an the conditions for you to grow, learn and experience the things that make life rich and fulfilling, so come and help us on our mission to empower people to live better.

We're currently looking for a number of different volunteers, including:
- Photographer/videography
- Life coach
- Receptionist
- Groundskeeper
- Kitchen helper
- Community Manager
- Content creator/editor

4 Weeks ago

My name is AJ. I am from England and found Rosemary Dream whilst travelling Central and Latin America. From the 6 weeks I spent with the people at Rosemary; developing the idea of the project, creating the marketing strategy and helping set the place up ready to receive the first guests, I knew this was a special place I had to come back to.
I am passionate about psychology and have an MSc Occupational Psychology. I use my educational background and previous work experience to help people improve the way they live and design a culture where people are happy, productive and motivated.

Work exchange deal

  • shared room, tent

All volunteers are given their accommodation according to their commitment of time to Rosemary and what we have available. Our shared mixed dorms come with a bathroom and lockers. Every bed has its own plug, light and curtain for privacy. They have been built with reclaimed wood that we collected, so each has its own unique character. We provide towels and sheets and of course, we have lovely hot showers. We also have a range of accommodation to use at your will, including jungle hammocks and areas for wild camping.

  • shared meals

Every collaborator gets the privilege of breakfast and lunch every day (excluding Sunday), which is usually a buffet-style vegetarian selection. On an average day we have fresh fruits, such as watermelon, apple, banana and papaya, raisin and coconut oats, egg frittata, fruit compote and a healthy treat of some sort. Lunch is equally as tasty and healthy, but changes from day to day. Every Tuesday and Friday we get together; team and guests, to eat a family meal.

  • no money is involved

This opportunity is for people with the desire to be a part of a project helping to empower people to live better. Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot offer money in exchange for your time and energy.
