**Welcoming a volunteer for Nov 2021 only**
I am a single mother of 6 year old twins -and I am home alone with them for half the week. I share custody with their father. I would love to have company and help with them. You will not be alone with them very much, just my helper. You might be alone with them for about 3-4 hours a week but not much. There have been a few times when my volunteer had to take care of the girls for a full day, but that is rare.
From Sept-June I work full time and my girls are at school. Your main responsibilities will be to pick them up after school (close to my home) and to help me 3 evenings a week and one weekend full day. You will mostly be on your own, and do some simple tasks for me when I am not home. If you need to, you would be able to work or study online almost full time.
July and Aug I don't work and my sharing schedule is basically 3 days with kids, 3 days without. I can be flexible.
You will have a lot of free time to do what you want. The most important thing is you LOVE children and enjoy spending time with them. My girls are high energy and they get along with everyone who can be patient and friendly with them. They love arts and crafts, going to the park, riding bikes, card games etc. They have loved all of my volunteers! And I'm pleased to say I have become close, lifelong friends with most of my volunteers :)
Looking for a long term volunteer, for example 6 months or longer, but will consider all offers.
**Please confirm that you are allowed to enter Canada, if you are not already here. I cannot offer a job letter as this is a volunteer program. You must be fully vaccinated to enter Canada.
**I am fully vaccinated We are still careful and follow masking and distancing rules. I have a small group of single mom friends that I see regularly, mostly outdoors. Priority is safety and I'm grateful for the vaccines, but it's not over yet.
I need someone to do fun, creative activities so they don't spend too much time in front of a tv or screen! Of course, sharing chores like cooking and cleaning, normal daily things... I really appreciate common sense and keeping a clean home. I am not artistic so... I need you to be!! :)
Mutual respect and good communication are important to me. I have my needs as a host but also respect that my volunteers have personal goals that I'm happy to support.
I am a kind and supportive person. Sometimes I'm chatty, and sometimes I need my alone time and quiet.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

I need a helper for me and my 6 year old twin girls. I will be home and you will help me play with them, cook, clean etc.
You will have a private room and bathroom. I live in rural suburb which is a 40 drive to Vancouver. I can help you with learning English, and I would love to practice my Spanish and French.
You will have a private room with own bath in a 2 bedroom condo. It's clean and new with all modern conveniences. I will provide all meals and you just help me cook! I like healthy homemade food and like international food. You will buy your own alcohol if you choose to. We have wifi and cable TV. I will provide meals and accommodation, and personal expenses are yours. Because my home is small I would prefer a female only.
I have my children for half the week so I would need your help 3-4 days a week, and the other days you will be free to explore. I live in Pitt Meadows, BC which has a lot of natural beauty, lakes, hiking, biking trails etc but if you are a city person you can take the train to Vancouver.
