  • Are you interested in assisting with office administration and business operations? Volunteer positions are open to work closely with our core team.

 

What you gain from volunteering:

Your commitment as a volunteer provides you with a great opportunity to use your skills in support of our mission: participating to improve education and the acquisition of the second official language in Canada: French.

The Benefits of Volunteering:

  • Open up opportunities of working as a tutor
  • Develop skills on a virtual platform

 

Scheduling:

Failure to attend will result in possible termination of the volunteer position, as well as leaving the campus understaffed if a replacement cannot be found quickly enough (if you are volunteering on the Virtual Immersion Campus)
  • You are required to volunteer for a minimum of 20 hours, either on the Virtual Immersion Campus, or hours will be decided on an individual basis for other positions
