Volunteer Program

We offer volunteer opportunities all year round. Learn how to surf, practice your Spanish, and do yoga all while gaining experience working in the international tourism field.

We currently have availability from:

November 2019

(end date of late December not possible for November start. Ideal stay is through to January 2020)


Social Host

In exchange for room and board, you'll help out around the place. Tasks include: entertaining guests, assisting at meal times, scheduling adventures and activities, packing surfboards away at the end of the day, blogging to our website, and more.

Many of our previous volunteers have learned to surf during their stay with us and greatly improved their ability.


You're required to give a $300 deposit, which will be returned at the end of your stay. First time volunteers may stay for up to 12 weeks. The minimum stay is 8 weeks — longer is ideal.

If you're interested, please email your resume to Matthew at shakacollective@gmail.com

Be sure to include the dates you are available, what country you are from, your previous travel experience, and languages spoken. If you have any special talents or skills such as photography, video editing, or website design, be sure to let us know.

Please note that we will not be able to respond to all applicants. Thanks!
