General Interests

Childcare

As a child care volunteer, you care for children aged 5 years old and under while their parents participate in a parenting session. Your role is to ensure that the children are safe, secure and occupied. You are expected to be punctual, reliable and respectful and aware of the needs of young children. You must follow the established policies and procedures, as outlined in the Caring for Kids & Volunteer Guide.  

 

You will work with other volunteers in overseeing a group of children (maximum 12) in the children's space while their parents are in the adjoining room. You are expected to arrive, sign in, get your nametag and help with room set up, assist with assigned child care activities and clean-up.  You should be able to speak and understand English.

Chit Chat Club

English and French-speakers get together once a month to work to a variety of tasks while practicing their second-language in small groups. It’s fun, informal and a great way to make new friends.

Volunteers work together in conversation groups on tasks like: washing/sanitizing toys, preparing crafts, folding newsletters or pamphlets, organizing books, folding fresh laundry, hanging decorations. These activities occur once a month on Friday.

Senior Friendly Visits

Many older English-speaking adults find themselves alone here in the Quebec City region, family members and friends having long since moved away. You can help ease their loneliness with a cheery chat or visit now and then.

Together, you, the senior, the client’s social worker will decide the details about how often you will visit and for how long. The client’s social worker will arrange and be present at the first meeting to make the necessary introductions. You will call the client before each of your visits, and follow up with the Volunteer Coordinator about how your visits are going.

Visits can be as long as you want, typically 1 or 2 hours. You may log your time accordingly.

Senior Transportation to medical appointments

Driving seniors to medical appointments is our most urgent need. So many of our seniors do not have a strong support system nearby to to ensure they get access to the health services they need when they need them. Be it a dental appointment, a visit to the ophthalmologist, a hospital screening or ongoing treatment, every check-in with a professional has a profound impact on their overall health and well-being. 

If you do not drive, your guiding arm would still be welcome to assist a senior using adapted transportation services (STAC).

We offer to reimburse you for mileage! The reimbursement covers mileage from the senior's place of residence to the destination and back.
