Wellness Centre


Wellness Centre at Jeffery Hale

The community Wellness Centre (WE) promotes the personal and shared well-being of English speakers in the Québec City region by offering a range of health promotion programs. 

You bring compassion, joy and community spirit to families, seniors and youth with special needs, helping to improve access to services for some of the most vulnerable members of the community.

We are always in great need of WE Drivers to transport community members to essential medical appointments. To proceed to register, please scroll down the page to the "Assistance for seniors and vulnerable community members" section and click on the link for the WE Drivers activity.

Please note that most of our volunteer opportunities are during regular business hours (weekdays, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) simply due to the nature of the task (i.e. medical appointments, Day Centre hours) and the needs of the vulnerable seniors who we assist. If you would like to help with Grocery Shopping & Errands and Friendly Visits, however, you can do so evenings and weekends if you prefer. 

After you click on the volunteer activity of your choice, look for the fill in an application button. Need help? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Elise Holloway at eholloway@jhpartners.net

Assistance for seniors and vulnerable community members

Many English-speaking seniors living in Quebec City may feel isolated and alone, especially if their family lives elsewhere. Caring volunteers like you help foster a sense of belonging and community, crucial to physical and mental well-being.

Our most urgent need is for WE Drivers.

 

Join us to assist our most vulnerable community members through occasional, but essential volunteer services. Even if you can help only a few times a year, you would still be a welcome addition to our team! You are free to say yes or no to any volunteer requests, and we gladly reimburse your mileage starting right at your front door. 

Rest assured that we have carefully outlined procedures that will allow you to complete your volunteer tasks with COVID-19 prevention at the front of mind.

Chit Chat Club

Returning Fall 2022!

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.

Family Matters

Take-a-Break Returning Fall 2022!

 

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 e-learning module.

 

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.
