Area: EnglandDoggie Training and general help required in small, friendly household, West Yorkshire. We are a family of four, I Monika, my partner Pete and our two doggies "babies" Alfie and Millie! We discovered workaway through my Son and his friend who spent a year touring the world volunteering with the workaway scheme having a fabulous time so ,after hearing their adventures we decided it would be ideal for us to sign up as hosts ourselves. We are easy going, relaxed, down to earth folk who like nothing more than to socialize with interesting people. We would like to open our doors to workawayers not just for help with our "babies" and in the home, but also to take part in a cultural exchange and to meet new people. We both work full time, on a shift basis, so we need volunteers who are motivated and who can work under their own initiative. Like most households there is not a lot to be done here, but there is always the daily activities of cleaning, dog walking and preparing evening meals, but we are receptive to new ideas and will try to adapt tasks to your individual skills.
Area: ArizonaWe are a working circus family! My husband and I have four beautiful children, two friendly dogs, and a big gorgeous home that sits on a third of an acre at the bottom of a mountain. We are in a professional band that performs frequently and our home is very musical and lively. It's difficult to put our entire vision into a small box, but here is the basis of what you would need to know: Our mission is creating community through music, art, dance, food as medicine and conscious parenting. Our vision is to provide a space for travelers and their families to come "plug in" to the resources this city has to offer, and to learn and grow with us until they are ready for their next adventure. We are looking for workers who are spiritually focused, psychic, intuitive, healers, or all of the above. While here you will have the opportunity to assist us with cultivating the land and vision.

Area: GentWe live in a house situated in the city of Ghent (4 km from the City Historical Center) let’s dare to say that this is one of the most interesting, cultural and sparkling city in Belgium. We are group of (young) persons (friends) from different countries and we love this multicultural environment where the main keywords are: understanding and respect. The most of us are professionals between 20 and 30 yo (but age is not really an issue for anything). We believe that living together is not easy, but each of us has to do some effort in order to make everyday life a home enjoyable for everybody. We are also sensible about ecology and we like to keep our home a place where we waste as less as possible (energy & products). Social and artistic people is really welcome, we appreciate to spend time together. In case of any issue we are all open to democratic discussions. We are all couchsurfing friendly. Because at home there are always things to repair or to keep working, we are looking for someone skilled who can think about it, something like an housekeeper but more focused on the maintenance (we are looking for someone who stays long term, at least one year starting from now) and organization of the house. Of course he will have important responsibilities about the house and the car. If you like self-organization it will be nice for you to live with us because you will get your own room and you will be quite independent in your works. CONDITIONS: Only Non-Smokers (We prefer to have non smokers at home). No Drugs at home. You get accommodation in your own room, for the food you will get a bonus dependent on the tasks that you do monthly. You need to have EU citizenship or permission (visum) to be in Europe for at least one year. You have a driving license (from time to time you need to use our Van)
