  • What else ...

    While volunteering I work part time teaching classes online. I have my own 4G internet router. This means I can only volunteer in places that offer good, cheap mobile phone coverage or reliable wi-fi. My class hours or flexible, but I prefer to have a block of at least 4 hours free each day during afternoons or evenings.
