Do you have a passion for movies/film, movie/film production, using online tools to produce, edit or create content? Are you a film maker, involved in production/editing and/or creating some form of video content? If you are willing to impart your experience and knowledge and enjoy working with youth, this is the initiative for you! The student I'm hoping to match is passionate about movies and extremely interested in learning more about film/movie production. The student is quite creative and has some experience doing video editing in his personal time. He is amazing at remembering names of movies, and classifying movies based on year and release dates . The student is more visual and auditory in his learning and enjoys working on the computer, but sometimes feels overwhelmed with conversation—it’s not as easy for him to respond back with lengthy dialogue. I thought if I could find someone who could approach things in a more “hands on” or visual way—it could really work for the student. This could happen by screen sharing ideas or walking him through the steps of how to do certain things—watching the mentor create or edit for example or by watching online tutorials together.

Student Links is an initiative that offers High School students who have an intellectual disability an opportunity to expand on current interests and hobbies, while discovering new possibilities for life after High School.

Your Role as a Mentor:
- Presenting information about your field of expertise
- Introducing a student to your hobby or industry
- Providing an opportunity for hands-on experience

This is an opportunity for you to help a student by sharing something you're passionate about.

CPAWS Ottawa Valley led the successful campaign to protect western Quebec's Dumoine River and a significant portion of its watershed from development, culminating in close to 1800 square kilometers of new protected spaces. Our focus is now shifting to raising awareness of the unique values of the watershed and connecting people to the watershed in responsible ways. In recent years, we have installed education panels in certain areas, we reopened a long abandonned trail and have been hosting an annual artists retreat along the river's shore for the last several summers. We would like to explore the potential for publishing a book about the natural heritage of the watershed. We envision a richly illustrated book, similar to books written about Algonquin Park, for example, in which we highlight the species and landscapes which make the Dumoine so special. This project would focus exclusively on the natural history, a recent book on the human history was published a few years ago. We are unfortunately not familiar with book publishing and we would require some funding in order to launch this initiative, including funding some staff time to assemble the manuscript and publishing costs. While we would hope to to generate a modest profit from the sale of books, the ultimate goal is to raise awarness of the watershed. Connected to the book, we also envision a website, social media and videos. We would welcome some assistance in researching potential sources of funding for such a project and/or discussing with those who have been successful (or who have learned lessons) from such a project.

Shelter Movers’ volunteer move teams are a grassroots response to Violence Against Women in our communities. Join our team!

Time Commitment
We offer flexible scheduling. Drivers can join us on moves based on their own availability by signing up for moves, as their schedules permit.

Nous offrons des horaires flexibles. Les conducteurs peuvent nous accompagner lors des déménagements de deux façons :
● en s’inscrivant pour un déménagement à la fois, dans la mesure où leur emploi du temps le permet, et/ou :
