Hello to all,
We are Mosaico House, a shelter for single women and their kids. We host around 32 people, and we are needing volunteers for February and March (long-term volunteers for subsequently months are welcome too).
We are organised in several shifts and we usually sign up for at least 2-3 shifts per week, but we are welcome to do more (it is better for the residents to know us, and don't have new volunteers every day). The building has two floors where the families live and one floor that has an activity room (serves as a playroom, visitors room, community room) and a classroom. During the shifts, the work of the volunteers is essentially on that floor with the children.
With the kids, the shifts are in the morning from 11 am-2 pm and 3 pm-6 pm during the afternoon, Monday to Friday. We usually do activities in the classroom or activity room, like crafts, games, workshops, education support, excursions, sports or whatever you can imagine. As you can see, any proposal is welcome.
We are asking to new volunteers to come in with activities planned in mind such as arts and crafts, sports activities, exercise, dance, educational activities or games, anything to keep them active and moving. We offer also a lot of different classes and workshops, for example, English and German class for the women.
