  • Description


    We are a nice and young family in Eastern Townships. We live in a nice big house in Sherbrooke, in the area of St-Elie-d'Orford (Sherbrooke).

    We have two big boys (13 and 14 years old). We also have two young cats living outside. We are living in a quiet residential area with lot of trees. So, you can take a walk in the forest behind the house if you like. There is also a bike you can use if you want to go downtown and there is a downtown bus that passes near at a low cost.

    We are looking for a volunteer because we need help for housekeeping (cooking, vacuuming, a bit of outdoor maintenance, etc.). Also, we are looking for having someone from April to May 10 (2015) to be there for our kids mostly for supervising their homeworks/study and to prepare the dinner.

    Dont hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

    Hope to see you soon!

    As the mom is a self-worker with irregular hours it becomes a bit difficult to keep the house clean and to manage the meal properly (as healthy as possible). The volunteer will only have to keep the house clean (regular cleanup and also sometimes windows, cupboards...)... things we don't have time to do...

    There no need with the kids at all except if you decide to come in April... we need someone to supervise and to take care of them on the first week of May since my husband and me have to leave. So supervise homeworks (make sure its done) and their lunch bags... stuff like that! :) No hard work with us, definitely! ;)
