The Santa Cruz Hostel Society is always in search for volunteers who can commit a little time and compassion to serve travellers at the reception desk, help with improving or repairing facilities, contribute to social nights, or become a member of the several committees whose efforts run the hostel and make the Carmelita Cottages the traveler's haven that it is.

Here are examples of what you could be doing:

Help Staff Our Front Desk: greet, orient, and register guests. Assign beds, sell memberships, interact with guests and meet world travelers!
Join Our Public Relations Committee: staff our booth at community events and festivals
Get Your Green Thumb Dirty: help restore and maintain the gardens surrounding our historic cottages on Beach Hill.
Help plan a calendar of events and activities to introduce our international guests to life in Santa Cruz.
Organize a "Concert in the Park"/Carmelita Coffee House with singing music, poetry reading, storytelling.

Please feel free to contact us at (831) 429-8541 or to joing our team of awesome volunteers.
