Building what will eventually become a 3,000km trail network is an enormous project. Volunteers both local and international will play a core role in helping to design, build, test and maintain the trail. Please read this section of the website carefully, and then decide which of the volunteering opportunities is the best fit for you. If you do apply to join the effort, we expect you to understand and agree to the conditions and rules of the various programmes.
Our teams in Georgia and Armenia can offer a variety of no-frills experiences for those interested in taking on the challenging work that supports the creation of the trail. We hope participants will enjoy themselves, make new friends, learn new skills, and immerse themselves in the cultures and landscapes of the Caucasus, but the primary purpose of volunteering is to offer your help with the massive project of building the trail. We ask volunteers to understand the realities of this, which means being flexible, open-minded, adventurous, and willing to work hard. We will continually strive to improve these opportunities based on your feedback.
If you do join the project, we want you to have an enjoyable and productive experience, and to understand what you are committing to before you arrive in the Caucasus. The beautiful photos and stories you’ll find throughout this website will give you part of the story, but we want applicants to understand the challenges and limitations as well.
Please take a look at the following opportunities to see what we currently need help with, and to decide which is the best fit for you.
