As a volunteer at the Shelter, you do not have to rent a room. Because during your stay in Amsterdam, you will live in a Christian community house with all volunteers of both hostels. This means you will live with almost 40 young Christians in one house! Our volunteers come from all over the world and are between 18 and 30 years old. In the house, you share a big kitchen and living room, a terrace, a library and bathrooms. You will share a bedroom with one to three other volunteers. Indeed, no private bedrooms ;-). You will have your own bike during your time here for cheap transportation through the city. The classes of the Ministry Training Program (MTP) take place in a classroom in the house.
Living in the ‘Jordaan’
Most noteworthy: the community house is just a quick five to ten minute bike ride to or from the Shelter City Hostel and the Shelter Jordan Hostel. So you will live close to work, in probably the most beautiful area of Amsterdam: the Jordaan. This safe and beautiful area is famous for its architecture and is surrounded by canals. You will find the community house a wonderful place to stay!
