The Ottawa Network for Education s OttawaReads program is a unique school/business partnership that draws volunteers from the corporate and public sectors to read one-on-one with children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 classes in Ottawa schools. After attending an orientation/training session in their place of work, volunteers fulfill a weekly or bi-weekly one-hour commitment to read to students in local schools. Each participating organization is partnered with a school in their own geographic location. The number of volunteers requested from each organization is based upon the size of the company and the requirements of the partnering school. We currently have several schools on the waitlist for new OttawaReads partners. Can you help? Be a team leader in your place of work!

• ‘Just be there’/Listen
• Provide encouragement, support and acceptance
• Acknowledge a caregiver’s strengths
• Share lived experience and give real life examples
• Discuss a caregiver’s wellbeing
• Provide support with developing coping strategies
• Provide relevant information
• Provide support to set goals the caregiver identifies
• Celebrate any goals the caregiver achieves
• Be someone for a caregiver to bounce ideas off

An OCO trained peer mentor must be:
• A caregiver who is currently or has previously provided physical and/or emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour
• Over 18 years of age
• Able to give a one year commitment to the program

Shelter Movers Ottawa provides free moving and storage services to those fleeing abuse in and around Ottawa. We are the only organization of our kind in Canada, and our volunteers are no less exceptional. Every year, in collaboration with community partners, our volunteer teams contribute over 15,000 hours to support people transitioning to lives free of violence and abuse.

We are looking for people who have a keen eye on organization and are good problem solvers. A Move Coordinator is an integral part of the move team, providing coordination of the move beforehand and on-call support on the day of a move. The Move Coordinator ensures all moves go smoothly, that volunteer movers and drivers are recruited, and tackles any unforeseen challenges.

As a Move Coordinator, you will be the puppeteer behind a move – the person who puts it together and makes it happen.

Moves happen all over the city, at various times in the day, throughout the week.

Since Move Coordinators work through email and phone, this is a work-from-home position, with occasional meetings (in-person and/or conference calls.) A 3 to 6 month commitment is strongly preferred.

Requirements
Collect move-related information from clients and referring agencies
Assemble volunteer move teams using a database and e-mail
Coordinate the date/time and other logistics of a move and ensure all clients and volunteers are available
Provide information to volunteers while protecting client confidentiality
Reserve move vehicles and ensure drivers have necessary information to pick up vehicles
Being available during a move to support the move team in the event of unexpected challenges (ie. extending vehicle reservations)
Electronically file client and volunteer waivers
Report back to Move Coordination Manager after each move
Use patience, empathy, and active listening skills in serving people under stress
Being aware of compassion fatigue, self-care, and working safely
Have regular check-ins with Shelter Movers staff

Shelter Movers volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, complete an interview process, attend an orientation for new volunteers, in addition to signing a confidentiality agreement and obtaining a criminal record check.

How to Apply:

Additionally, job loss and financial insecurity have also become more prevalent
during the pandemic, statistically leading to an increase in gender-based
violence. Shelter Movers has experienced a 30% increase in the demands for our
services since the beginning of the pandemic.
