House of England Greeter

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: House of England

  • 4 people are interested

House of England is part of the International Cottages of Balboa Park. Every Saturday and Sunday the cottages are open so visitors can check out the various Houses/cottages, such as House of Poland, House of Korea, House of Denmark, and many more. House of England seeks volunteers to help staff the cottage during our open hours (Sat & Sun 11-4). We say hello and offer tea. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ENGLISH!! Do you like Harry Potter, the Beatles, Jane Austen? That is enough.

Shifts go from 11am to 4pm each Saturday and Sunday. If 5 hours is too long you can do just 2 or 3.
Two people host at each shift. Visitors come from near and far and are delighted by the House of England. Some will tell you they grew up in England, or that they just got back from a visit there, or are planning a visit there. People are so happy to be there! The atmosphere is very fun and upbeat.

If you're interested but not completely sure, you can come by for a tour with no commitment at all.
The House of Pacific Relations (HPR) community is great. This 'gig' is especially good if you're a people person and/or have an interest in the international community. Contact us if you have questions.
