Program Details

We are looking for volunteers who are responsible, self-motivated, and (most importantly) who also enjoy being part of a family ❤️

Rules

*Please note the use of cell phones needs to be limited during your volunteering hours. We try to be mindful of screen usage and appreciate volunteers not spending most of their time on social media in front of our children. This kind of volunteer will not be a suitable match for our family*

*If you have dietary restrictions (eg. gluten-free) OR have specific preferences for certain foods/drinks, we will only purchase items that the entire family also consumes. We prefer not to contribute to more worldwide food wastage.

*Please note as we do not smoke, consume alcohol or eat pork, we kindly ask volunteers to respect our wishes and also not consume these items in the house*

*We do not permit friends of volunteers to stay overnight and are unable to lend out our car due to strict car insurance rules in BC.*
