Area: VenetoWe are an Italian/American family that run a bed and breakfast in a rural area near the 'Dolomiti Bellunesi' National Park. We live in the original house of Christian's great grandparents. Amy moved to the Dolomites a few years ago from Bishop California. Our daughter Katerina was born in July 2013 and we also have a very nice and friendly dog, Zucca. We enjoy the peacefulness and stillness of living in nature, surrounded by trees and next to a river. At the same time we like to share our home with those who enjoy nature and are curious to discover this hidden part of the Dolomites. The closest village is 2 kilometers away and the main town of Feltre is 6 kilometers. Feltre is very nice and the 'old' town center is surrounded by medieval walls. Feltre has a train station which makes travel easy to other cities. Venice is one and half hours by train. Our house is located conveniently because it is between the mountains and the venetian towns full of art.
Area: CataloniaHi, We are a family with two lovely kids (7 and 8) that live in a small and very beautiful place near the beach and the mountain called Teià.

We like spend our free time with our kids doing several things like cycling in the beach, trekking in the mountain or playing games. We are looking for an English speaking person to help kids and us to improve our English language level and maybe you can teach to the boys music, play the guitar... We need help caring 3 or 4 hours per day only five days a week. We like the talkative, outgoing people. We are sure that your stay with us will be very rewarding for all and you will feel like one more of our family. See you soon!! Duran's family
Area: Central AmericaI was a US Peace Corps volunteer in this village 10 years ago and returned four years ago to continue to help the community. I created an Education Center and need help in training villagers in sewing and crafts, English language, tutoring students, helping with the demonstration of an organic, integrated agriculture system consisting of trees, gardens, fish, and small animals. Need help in running the internet cafe for the students. We build low cost, hurricane resistant homes with used tires and ferro-cement . I am a birdwatcher.
Area: British ColumbiaWe are a family ranch nestled between a mountain and a crystalline lake. In the heart of the Interlakes area, the ranch is a haven filled with animals and country-livin'. On the ranch, a normal day's activities could include fixing fences, cutting and collecting firewood, housework, building projects, cooking, calving (seasonal), haying (seasonal), maintenance, and animal care. Please keep in mind that we are NOT a horse ranch; we are a working cattle ranch, and while some chores may include the horses, like rounding up and herding the cattle, or exercising and caring for the horses, but lots of the work doesn't involve the horses. We try to achieve a peaceful, loving atmosphere. We are lucky to be a few minute walk from the calm, beautiful Bridge Lake and a few minute drive from Sheridan Lake, Roe Lake, Deka Lake, Lac De Roche, and many more. After work, there may be time to enjoy a game of horseshoes, a swim in crystal-clear water, or a ride through the forests on one of our big-hearted horses. Or maybe time to practise your roping skills on our calf dummy. Life on the ranch isn't easy; there's always work to do, but we find that with teamwork and laughter, any chore can be made fun! We are looking for eager, outgoing workaways, between ages 20-40. No preference of gender, religion, or ethnicity. Must be outdoorsy and hardworking. Preferably someone with experience with carpentry, handy-man work, or cattle ranching, but all applicants will be considered, regardless of experience. Volunteers must be physically fit. Experience in ranching, livestock, fencing, gardening, and hard work will be preferred, but the main thing we are looking for in workaways is the ability to do any type of work giving 100% and with a smile. We are fully prepared to teach you and will definitely appreciate a willing to learn attitude.
Area: South DakotaMy wife and I are a pretty young (early 30s) and easy-going couple. I'm the benevolent overlord at a small advertising agency in downtown Deadwood, and my wife is a trained archeologist (although she currently works as a finance director and goddess of administration at my office). We spend most of our time working on our house, but we also like to read, write, cook, hike, mountain bike and entertain our small black cat, named Minou. We also love to travel, especially to Europe: I studied abroad in the UK, Laura got her master's degree in Belgium, I proposed in France, and we got married in Greece. Alas, most of our spending money has gone into restoring our house since we bought it two years ago, so it's been a while since we've gone anywhere overseas. Our trips lately have been over to Yellowstone, which is 7 hours by car.
