Volunteers offer our residents their talents and their companionship. Experience how volunteering can help you grow. Offer your help.
We sometimes confuse volunteerism with lending the occasional helping hand. It is wonderful to be ready to help on an ad hoc basis, but volunteering goes much further.
True volunteering involves a clear commitment including specific tasks, a fixed schedule and a fixed time period. In fact, in our daily operations we take into account the fundamental contributions of our volunteers when establishing our work schedules and activities. In addition, we ensure that volunteers are given truly meaningful responsibilities. Far from restricting your freedom as a volunteer, you will find that this approach is much more rewarding for you. You become one of our team members.
Offering one’s own time is the best gift that can be made. When they make themselves available for visiting, entertaining and helping our seniors at Villa Youville, our volunteers themselves also become big winners.
Indeed, it is proven that engagement with a charitable organization has positive effects on people. Giving freely to help others and providing a public service gives us a sense of accomplishment that is not granted by paid work.
And thanks to volunteering, we show a greater interest in others, we open ourselves to the world around us. In addition, we often have the pleasure of spending some very pleasant moments with other people who share the same desire to help others. These moments often lead to rewarding and long lasting friendships.
