(WAFB) -Ever dreamed of escaping the hustle and bustle? Airbnb is searching for volunteers to send to a quaint village in Italy for three months, according to a release from the company.
In partnership with Wonder Grottole, an NGO that promotes urban regeneration, Airbnb is recruiting four volunteers in Italy’s Matera province in the small village of Grottole.
They will work as Experience and Home hosts, and learn to speak the language and help run the village’s vegetable garden. The position would also allow volunteers to explore the Italian countryside and learn to cook traditional meals.
The goal of the partnership is to boost tourism by making the village a must-see stop. Currently, the village has a population of 300, and has over 600 abandoned houses.
To qualify for the opportunity, you must be over 18, able to speak good conversational English, and to show “commitment to contribute to village life.” Visit www.italiansabbatical.com to learn more about the program and how to apply for it.
