Area: Europe/Portugal/Algarve*CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR SIVANANDA YOGA TEACHERS* We are a health and wellness retreat located in the beautiful valleys of the Algarve region. We are always seeking friendly and motivated volunteers to help us with our programs, gardening, permaculture, cooking, cleaning, maintenance, and animal care.
Area: warmińsko-mazurskieWe are a family of 4, parents and two children (6&8), looking for a friendly person who would like to spend some time with us and teach our kids English or Spanish. We live in the north of Poland by the lake. I am a teacher, so if you decide to visit us in June or July I will show you our region and travel with you.
Area: LimousinWe have a winter-stop, but as of March 2015, you would be very welcome! This is an old farm, meant to become a non-profit center for traumatized people and people who are always caring for others (like caretakers, parents of children with disabilities, priests) and too little for themselves. The center will be run by volunteers. It might take a few years before we can open the center, as a lot of work has to be done first. We would be very happy if you would come to help us, so if you let us know what your talents are, and why you would like to join us, no doubt we will find you something to do :-) You could also have a look at the work we already scheduled: March and April: clearing out a piece of woodland, and building the foundation for the first cabin May and June: the vegetable garden + clearing out another piece of woodland and building two more foundations July, August and September: the vegetable garden + building the 3 cabins October: harvesting and conserving fruit Experience is not important, we will be happy to show you how to do it :-) What is important though, is that you realize the work is pretty physical. But it will never be all about work, we'll be having a lot of fun as well! We work 5 days a week from 8.30 to 11.00 and from 11.30 to 14.00, so there's plenty of time to have a look around and to study French. There are a whole lot of activities to join in the villages nearby, which will help you to improve your French even more. You are very welcome for (a minimum of) two weeks or longer. You will be sleeping in one of the guestrooms (1 or 2 person per room) or in the caravan. We appreciate it when you arrive/leave on a Saturday. The meals will be prepared in turns and will be as organic as possible. French, English and Dutch spoken. ((Any use of drugs (soft drugs included) is not allowed.))
Area: Cape Breton Island, Nova ScotiaCarpenter or all around Handy Person needed in 2 locations....Cape Breton Island and Wolfville :) Beginning late October to late November. I own an award winning backpackers hostel overlooking the beautiful Bras d'Or Lakes and surrounded by trees, fresh air and wildlife. I'm looking for volunteers to help with all kinds of things from now to end of October. If you enjoy being active, I am close by to hiking, kayaking, biking, swimming and beaches. Workawayers are welcome to help with cleaning, making beds, landscaping, renovations and building projects, helping travellers, answering phones etc . I host hundreds of international backpackers each season and invite you to be part of this great place! Late afternoon and night is left for BBQ's, reading in the hammocks, biking, swimming, campfires, and music. Please contact at least a few days before as I only have room for 2-3 workawayers at a time and don't want to disappoint. Length of stay is flexible yet if we both enjoy the experience I would prefer you stay 2-4 weeks, longer if you have a work visa. My best experiences with workawayers have been those not afraid of working hard and playing hard, who enjoy meeting new people and are open to new experiences. Preference given to non smokers, those with a sense of humour and anyone who has a trade, namely carpentry, electrical and plumbing. See you soon :) Carm
Area: SO. CaliforniaOur family is always on the go, very laid back, and enjoy going lots of places in the community that you are welcome to join us at if you so desire. We are looking to host workawayers who desire to become part of our family for a few days or a few months as long as it is a mutually beneficial placement for both of us. We have very much enjoyed workaway this past summer and have met many great young women from around the world who my kids and my family have loved. Basically I need a personal assistant to just pick up where I leave off or start where I don't. Duties would include cooking (we eat paleo so it involves a lot of cooking or prep on a regular basis), dishes, cleaning, laundry, and just maintaining my life and helping with the kids and/or babysitting so I can work, homeschool, coach soccer, drive my kids to and from activities, and travel for work. I am a career educator who speaks at high schools, libraries, colleges, and for community organizations. So if you need career advice or are in college or a recent grad...you get that as a bonus, I actually found this site when working with a client. I work very part time, only a few days a month sometimes one day a week, but I also need time to work at home or away from home preparing material and taking care of other details I cant do while the kids are awake and wanting my attention. Sometimes I also drive 30 min-3 hours a away to work so you can come along or stay behind......but a good chance to see the area. I also need help with marketing, videography, design, photography, social media, etc. if you so have a gifting in any of that. So when I am not working, I stay home with my two kids, 3 and 7. My 3 year old son is VERY active but is super cute and fun to be around. When I am home though, he won't leave my side so it is hard to get things done. He just started preschool two mornings a week this month and is excited, at least for now, but is having potty training issues so may not get to stay if he does not figure it out. My daughter 7, is very talkative, loves to hang out with workawayers and play with them, and is very bright. If you want to practice your english, she will talk to you from the time you wake up until the time you go to sleep if you allow her. She enjoys circus (she does swinging ladders, unicycle, and combination circus), music, mainly signing, and is very grown up in so many ways, and will be a great companion to you here in the US in teaching you whatever you want to know. She is playing soccer this year (I am coaching) and we are homeschooling 3 days a week as well which I need a lot of help with in terms of prep or clean up or distracting brett. But we also go do a ton of fun stuff like field trips and adventures you can join us on if you want. My husband is a high school football coach and teacher so I am a football widow till November and can use the extra help with the house and the kids! We live in a town called Redlands, we just moved here a month ago, but have been in the community participating in things and working here for about 6 years. It is a cute town with lots of community events and we live in walking or biking distance to it all. We also live by three gyms and you can get week long passes to all of them for free during your stay. There is a bus station in downtown where you can catch a bus to the metros and from there get to all the tourist attractions. Our closest airports are Ontario and La X and they offer metro and busses from each to Redlands. Redlands has a university, a large international technology company, and a lot of cyclists...........so it is a very diverse town that I would describe as healthy and fit and active. So if you are into that, it is a cool place to be. We are looking for someone who fits into our family, hangs out with us and helps us with our daily needs, and that enjoys being here just as much as we enjoy having them! I am all about you also enjoying your vacation so how you help us is flexible, we just sit down every few days and talk schedules and see who has what going on and make a plan......... Looking forward to meeting you and even if you come a few days, we are happy for the help and the cultural experience. p.s. no smokers, we have allergies, and our pet is just a rat.......a cute tame lovable rat that lives in a cage!
