Perfect for a crafter, we are looking for someone to help prep crafts, activities, and presentations ahead of time. This would be perfect for a parent, older students, or a retiree and will involve collecting and preparing supplies for use in upcoming events. This commitment is variable and would be approximately 2-5 hours as needed. We have an inclusive, family friendly office where small children are more than welcome.

Misc. Construction
On occasion (more frequently than you might think) we need shelving, storage, or other items created. If you’re handy and have a couple of hours here and there, you would be perfect for this role. For more information, please contact info@neat.ca.
