Volunteering

Volunteering

GET INVOLVED, AS A TEAM, AT YOUR OWN PACE!

IF THE ROBIN GIVES BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, IT IS IN PART THANKS TO THE VOLUNTEERS WHO LEND US A HAND. WE THANK THEM FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

To contribute as a volunteer, you don’t need experience, a resume or a letter of reference. The only thing required is a desire to help.

How do you get started? Create an account, check out the available shifts, sign up according to your preferences and availability. It’s simple and it makes a big difference!

Whether you have time to give on a one-time, weekly, monthly or even yearly basis, whether the kitchen or the dining room calls to you, everything is possible and any help is greatly appreciated!

THINGS TO KNOW…

  • You will have to respect a dress code: closed shoes, clean clothes, no holes or tears, no wadded up cotton, no “spaghetti” straps. And in the kitchen, long pants.
  • You must have good hygiene: be clean from head to toe and have a neutral smell. If you have long hair, it should be tied back. And in the kitchen, you must remove jewelry and not wear nail polish.
  • You will need to be punctual: if shifts are posted, it means we need help! If you have committed, we are counting on you for the duration of your commitment!
  • Are you between 12 and 14 years old? Good for you for wanting to volunteer! However, you must be accompanied by an adult.

"THE JOY OF GIVING! IT'S SIMPLE SIMPLE! YOU ARE WELL TAKEN CARE OF, WELL DIRECTED (AND FREE AT THE SAME TIME). VERY SATISFYING! VERY EASY TO DO A SHIFT AT THE ROBIN. EVERYONE IS PLEASANT, YOU COME OUT NOURISHED AND... YOU LAUGH!”
