Ecotourism Development in Central Jerusalem

Category :: Israel
Share |
The Abraham Jerusalem hostel is a new travel-center located in the center of Jerusalem; the hostel is dedicated to the promotion and execution of ecological travel, and a fun and dynamic hostel environment. Goals of the hostel include recycling and waste management initiatives, organic gardening and compost, interaction with the communities that directly surround it including Me'a Shearim (an ultra-Orthodox Jewish section of Jerusalem) and East Jersualem and increased tourism and use of the Jerusalem trail. Volunteers are needed to help with these initiatives and to think of their own, as they will become an integral part of the hostel staff.

As a volunteer you will be involved in several important tasks. Some of these include "chaperoning" groups of tourists to and from the daily walking tour offered by the hostel, leading informal hikes and walks along the Jerusalem trail, helping to plan and promote social initiatives within the hostel facilities (including but not limited to, pub nights, lectures, yoga or meditation groups etc.), and urgently implementing a recycling and organic waste/ compost project at the hostel. Volunteers may also be needed to help in the hostel kitchen to serve tourists. Plans for the hostel include volunteer participation in renovating an organic rooftop garden. We urge volunteers to come with an open mind and their own initiative.

No matter what your skills and talents, there is also a lot of room for your own ideas and interests that can benefit the Abraham Jerusalem Hostel. Projects can include but are not limited to:

Website translation
