  1. Dear Hello Marseille

    My name is Armenuhi, I am from Armenia.

    I have been lucky to be hosted in Hello Marseille for 12 days in October 2013.
    And the same time i learned about the volunteering opportunity in there, which really attracted me.
    I would love to apply for the Cook position.

    In your announcement it’s stated that you are looking for young, smart, fun and motivated volunteers. I feet to the last 3 features and I am a young woman of 63 y.o. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here is my question: can I apply for this position despite my age?
    If yes, which kind of financial support is provided to volunteer (free accommodation, food money, volunteer allowance, local transport card, etc.)

    1. Hekki Armenuhi, the hosts usually cannot read the reference/comment section. Try to contact them via their contacts you can find in the contact details section, usually located at the end of each volunteer program announcement.
