About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

I live just West of the 'Silicon Valley of the South', Huntsville, Alabama, just 25 miles from the Tennessee border. I run a small, hobby business from my home. I plan to sell my home soon and need a volunteer who would like to stay in US for up to three months and help me learn Spanish. There is light work to be done here, mainly organizing, packing, and translating shipping manifests. None of this is lengthy nor complicated. My home is in the country, quiet, pleasant neighborhood, private yard, fenced, lots of shade. Yet I am just minutes from Space and Rocket Center, University of Alabama in Huntsville, and only two hours from Nashville or Birmingham, should you want to visit either. Atlanta or Memphis are 4-5 hours away. Huntsville is a vibrant town with a nice nightlife and many metaphysical and New Age groups or events.
