This organization's needs

  • (#30954) CommunitasDaytime | Week-end
    Communitas is looking for adult volunteers to participate in Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA). In CoSA small groups of trained volunteers commit to accompanying and supporting the reintegration of individuals with histories of sexual offending. Circles meet on a weekly basis to provide assistance with re-entry challenges and to discuss the needs of the core member. In this way CoSA provides a healthy environment characterized by open discussion and social support. This Canada-wide program is recognized as effective by Public Safety Canada. | Place of work: Locations as agreed by circle members / Le lieu de l'activité est choisi par les membres du cercle Read more...

These volunteers will receive training before undertaking this role, and will need to pass a background check. These volunteers will also need to have a driver’s licence and a vehicle. | Place of work: 1444 Union Ave. Montreal QC H3A 2B8, and various penitentiaries in the greater Montreal area Read more...
  • Communitas is looking for adult volunteers to participate in meetings of our Tuesday evening activity, Open Door. At it’s simplest Open Door is a weekly gathering that provides an inclusive environment where volunteers, prisoners, and former prisoners all enjoy a presentation or discussion of general interest, followed by refreshments and socialization. No training or skills are needed to participate, just a friendly and respectful attitude towards others. | Place of work: 1444 Union Ave. Montreal QC H3A 2B8 Read more...
