Discover Detroit with us!

Volunteers have had a lot of fun at our place in the past. We have hosted a lot of volunteers at our guest house. Now that our kids are grown, we are bringing volunteers to help with our homes. We have several big houses, so we need some help around the houses.

It's a great opportunity to be in a familial environment. Expect to be treated just like a member of the family at our home. you will have some fun for sure and be invited to many activities and events. You will receive a free gym membership and stay in one of our nice houses.

If you want to practice your English it's a great place to be. The mom is certified to teach English as a second language so can help you improve your English. And the family only speaks English so it's a true Immersive experience.

This was the my first experience with Worldpackers and I had a really good time.
Karen took care of me all the time to stay comfortable and get good experiences.
She is a expert of the city and has a large connection in the city. She gave me so many experiences in the city.
After all, dishes she cooks every work days were so great.

I will visit again when I can speak English more fluently.

Karen was a wonderful host. From day one, she made sure i was able to immerse myself in the local culture. She recommended me a lot of places such as museums, yoga classes and community volunteering. The work varied a lot, we needed to take care of little tasks around her houses. She gave us bike to move around, even though i found public transportation to be more efficient. Good experience, I would recommend.

It has been the best experience I have had Karen and her family have treated me as part of her family, giving me unconditional support, I have been fortunate to be able to meet other fellow volunteers both at Karen's house and on the Worldpackers page asking me concerns getting to connect with many of them, and create bonds of friendship. In the experience of the language Karen has always been waiting for him to work on it since we wrote to each other for day-to-day activities, in conversations when we share different seasons such as breakfast and the help of a teacher weekly.

It was one of the best experiences of my life. This was my first volunteer with WorldPackers and it couldn't be better. The city feels like home and the host Karen is very kind. I learned a lot there, improved my English, and made some international friends. I'd love to be back soon, If you have the opportunity to come, do it.
The host doesn't want free workers, she really cares about cultural exchange and different activities around the neighborhood.
Also, you can save a lot of money eating in the different spots that offer free food every day.
