Nombre de postes disponibles: 1

Endroit: Ottawa - Ouest

Date limite: 21 juin 2019

Description

Petra’s world has shrunk because of progressive eye condition. She would love a volunteer Advocate to socialize with, someone who could help her get back out in to her community and who shares some of her interests –theatre, singing, walking and aqua fit. If you can, Petra would also like help with some practical tasks and to find new activities that accommodate her diminishing vision.

As a friend to someone with a disability you can have a profound effect on their life by reducing loneliness and isolation; helping to achieve hopes and dreams; developing personal networks and relationships; decreasing vulnerability; and increasing self-confidence, mental and physical health.

Join our team of more than 250 volunteer advocates who are enriching the lives of someone in their community. You will gain a wonderful new friendship – someone to share activities that you love. You need to be over the age of 18 and to make a minimum commitment of 12 months to this role [Note: your status in Canada may affect your ability to make this commitment e.g. visitor visa, student visa, refugee claimant]. Preparation and ongoing support are provided.
