Resident Coworkers

At Camphill Ghent, we have coworkers who live in the community and participate in care work, festival and cultural life, land work and other community tasks:

  • CARE WORK: Resident coworkers assist with personal care (activities of daily living) and also includes housekeeping, passing medication, and providing soul care through meaningful companionship and conversation.
  • CULTURAL AND FESTIVAL LIFE: Resident coworkers participate in our celebration of different cultural activities and multi-faith, multi-tradition events and festivities. Resident coworkers are involved in planning, implementing and participating in our cultural life.
  • LAND WORK: Resident coworkers care for our gardens and in the winter time, help manage with outdoor tasks like snow removal.

As a resident coworker, you will be provided with either a studio or one-bedroom apartment and access to shared amenities with other coworkers. Your living costs will be covered with a monthly stipend and you will also receive health insurance.

All resident coworkers are provided trainings to become certified as NY State home health aide.

We also welcome gap volunteers who are looking for short-term commitments of at least three months. This is ideal for high school seniors looking for a placement for their social internship, or recent graduates looking for a gap experience.
