We organize, three times a year, 5-7 volunteers get-together in the Latin Quarter in Montreal. The purpose of these events is to discuss the issues of volunteering in a casual way, but also to network and create a real community of practice around the issues of volunteering in Montreal.
Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, our get-together have been suspended, but we are still organizing lunch conferences.
Our last online lunchtime conference took place on March 24, 2021 and had the theme “mental health and volunteering”. Volunteering is good for your health – both physical and mental – this has been proven for a long time. However, certain practices or contexts can lead to burnout among volunteers and their managers. The exchange aimed to take a critical and constructive look at current volunteering, which is evolving in a time of health crisis. You can watch the conference here.
Stay tuned on our social networks and on our newsletter to be aware of the next events!
