Sunnahof is an awesome social-agricultural center with people of all kinds of (dis-)abilities. They have an organic farm, with animals to be taken care of, a big garden center with all kinds of plants and herbs to grow, a woodworking- and handicraft area and a restaurant/shop area.

Sunnahof is a limited liability company and an affiliated company from an association founded 1967, called “Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg”. Sunnahof is situated in Göfis, near Feldkirch.


Tâches du volontaire :

The volunteer will work five days a week, 34 hours a week including German course. S*he will have two days holidays per month.

In terms learning opportunities, the volunteer will have a varied role and therefore gain invaluable experience and skills for working with people with light intellectual disabilities and behavior problems. On that course they will learn a lot about their ways of living as well as, disability issues and issues facing the local community.

They will also learn how to work along with people with disabilities and how to increase their skills and promote their independence. Furthermore, they will gain access to the work as a farmer, carpenter, gardener and gastronome.

The role of the volunteer will be to work along with our employees and people with intellectual disabilities and behavior problems, mainly in ONE of our four working areas: agriculture, carpentry, plant nursery or gastronomy + farm shop. The volunteers will be encouraged and accompanied to support people to tackle a task for themselves, in order for them to realize their potential and abilities. They are also supporting our employees during their daily work. The volunteer’s work will be guided by our professional employees. Also, the volunteer will get the free space to create and implement own ideas. We are welcoming new and creative ideas, which we believe adds new perspectives to our organization.

There are many different things to learn as a volunteer at Sunnahof. Every working area has its own charm, learning possibilities and challenges. Independent from the working area the volunteer will be involved in the work and attendance of people with intellectual disabilities and behavior problems.

Profil recherché :

We are looking for open minded people who want to collect a lot of experiences in the daily work with people with intellectual disabilities and behaviour problems. We expect that the volunteer brings in a high motivation. Moreover, the volunteer should should have a stabilized personality so that they are able to encourage and accompany people with disabilities to realize their potential and abilities.
