    Description

    I am a single mother of 5.5 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. My girls are happy and healthy and they keep me busy. You will not be alone with them very much, just my helper. You might be alone with them for an hour or two 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 onward I will be working full time and my girls will be 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 day. You will mostly on your own, and do some simple tasks for me when we are not home.

    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 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 volunteer for MARCH 2021 onward.

    **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.

    **I need a volunteer who is committed to following health advisories, regarding staying at home except for essential shopping (i.e. food), attention to detail regarding cleaning and washing hands. I need someone who has been following these rules since March 2020 and who is unlikely to bring the virus into my home. I live in a quiet neighbourhood where you can go for long walks in beautiful nature, or take my bike for a ride. I will not expect you to be indoors all day, but just be careful. We are all frustrated, stressed, and scared, but we must respect the current rules for the benefit of all society.

    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.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    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.

    What else ...

    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.
