Hello soon-to-be Coastline Trek Volunteers!

The legendary Lithuanian Coastline Trek turns international and invites you to join our team of volunteers for a great and rewarding experience in the sunniest city of Latvia!

We are looking for around 200 volunteers to assist us in creating the most precious memories in Liepāja city on the coast of the Baltic sea!

We will gather an international team of volunteers from different countries, so it is necessary to be able to communicate in the English language. All we are looking for is #MOTIVATION, #FLEXIBILITY and #ENTHUSIASM. Do you think that you got what it takes? Join us now!

If you have friends or family members that are in awe of trekking and you also strive to be a part of an enormous hiking event….why not volunteer?! Or if represent a local community or a youth group that might be interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you!
