    I live in Catania, an amazing sunny lively city in Sicily, with nice beaches and parties. changed my life because I married the most wonderful person on earth. We met because of this community and now have two beautiful daughters that fill our lives with joy.

    2 Enthusiastic and responsible helpers who are willing to help us restore our new flat.

    Volunteers should be motivated, disciplined and serious about the work that needs to be done, after the 4 to 5 hour shift of work you can enjoy the city and explore the east coast of Sicily.

    The work that needs to be done (depending on what you can do better and prefer):
    Painting, grinding doors, gardening,
    We are looking mostly for couple and friends, cool and open minded. We prefer Volunteers with photo & Facebook verification.

    Editing, social media management and web marketing skills are plus welcome but now we need practical interests such as art craftwork, general building maintenance, painting, gardening and cleaning for our new home.

    If you are a hard working, dedicated volunteer who loves social life, photography, helping people we would love for you to help out here in beautiful Catania.

    All of the volunteers can volunteer together and they will be integrated into our community, linked with bed and breakfast and our sailing club as a team and they will share tasks.

    These are not short-term exchange positions, we need helpers who can
    commit for at least 3 weeks to 2 months of work.

    The help required varies from 4 to 5 hour a day.
    There is always something to do.

    >>In exchange for your help here
