Volunteer + Work

Matador’s community members are among the most knowledgeable people to ask about volunteer opportunities and travel jobs.

We’re Peace Corps volunteers, Alaskan fishermen, wild-land forest fire fighters, cargo ship deckhands, boat captains, wildlife biologists. We’ve spent time Wwoofing around the world. We’ve worked in wildlife and wilderness conservation, literacy, animal rehabilitation, trail maintenance.

We’re always on the lookout for great NGOs to profile and individuals pioneering ways of working both in local communities and location independent. Tell us your story.
