Volunteering and Career

Thank you to our volunteers!

Team Loto-Quebec: Andreas Matsiros, computer analysist, Stéphanie Fournelle-Maurice, editor and Sami Abdeladim, technology architect

Any career opportunity begins with a short-, medium- or long-term volunteer project with the possibility of compensation depending on performance and availability. Step 1, become a volunteer!

Volunteer opportunities are vast and varied according to your talents and your interests.

Our administrative volunteers are talented, and perform tasks in accounting, office work and human resources. Our volunteer companions, meanwhile, accompany some of the children in group programs such as summer day camps. These volunteers are mostly students in occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy, psychology, or in other areas of health, social services, education or recreation. Without their generosity, Buds in Bloom© could not provide children rapid access to a specialized service. We are extremely grateful.

Interested in becoming a volunteer companion or administrative volunteer? Contact us to make a request. For administrative volunteers, the first orientation meeting is coupled with the first day of work. For companion volunteers, the first orientation meeting is usually held in April, followed by three training sessions, for group programs beginning at the end of June. You will then be ready to accompany children, generally toward the end of June, beginning of July.
