From gardening, shopping, cooking, DIY, to language practice and homeschooling, the list is endless! An extra pair of hands can make all the difference to help home life run smoothly. Connect with travellers from different parts of the world to offer food and a friendly place to stay, as well as the opportunity to integrate and learn about your local culture in exchange for some extra help. Start hosting workawayers to meet new friends, share or exchange some new skills, gain fresh ideas and memorable experiences. The best part? Registering as a host is completely free on Workaway!
You get to meet great people from all around the world with who you can share ideas. Since we also like to travel and love the international community, it’s a way of being in one place and at the same time having the feeling of traveling. Often workawayers have simple creative ideas that help improve the place little by little. With the volunteers we found a sustainable way to keep our project going.
-- Workaway host Devi & Ezra, Switzerland
Workawayers come to our house, through them, we learn about their countries, their lifestyles, their experience. Everyone has their own story and after meeting so many people, that way we can also learn about the world in a completely unique way.
-- Workaway host Kitty and family, Vietnam
Both my husband and I were journalists in the old days, and would expect our children to keep travelling and gaining new experience of peoples and cultures. We love the scope that Workaway offers, and are adamant that as many people as possible should be given the chance to travel, broadening their horizons and making friendships that will help them grow and foster understanding.
-- Workaway host Safia and Ian, U.K.
