  • Description


    Skilled people in DIY and French speakers. Welcome!

    My name is Charly.
    One of my friends has volunteered for 3 years and she told me about this wonderful cultural exchange program. I am renovating my little apartment in Narbonne Plage in the south of France.
    The help of DIY fans knowing how to handle the tools and skilled in renovation works would be fantastic! Your help with daily housework would also be helpful. Please, it's better someone who speaks French, my English is too basic!
    I know a lot about construction and renovation, and I can teach with pleasure even if I need a minimum of qualification at least for some home improvement and do-it-yourself tasks.
    The minimum period would preferably be two weeks and can certainly be longer.

    Je m'appelle Charly.
    Une de mes amies fait du bénévolat depuis 3 ans et c’est elle qui m’a parlé de ce formidable programme d’échanges culturels. Je suis en train de rénover mon petit appartement à Narbonne plage dans le sud de la France.
    L’aide de fans de bricolage sachant manier les outils serait fantastique! Votre aide pour les tâches ménagères quotidiennes serait également utile. S'il vous plaît, c'est mieux quelqu'un qui parle français, mon anglais est trop basique!
    Je connais beaucoup de choses sur la construction et la rénovation, et je peux enseigner avec plaisir mais si je préfère un minimum de qualification en rénovation et bricolage.
    La période minimale serait de préférence de deux semaines et peut certainement être plus longue.
