Promotion and development of community volunteering
Objectives : to valorize, promote and develop volunteering in order to encourage participation and commitment from the general public. To identify community needs. To work in collaboration with community resources in an effort to solve social problems.
The Centre d’action bénévole L’Actuel is part of the reference framework of the Fédération des Centres d’action bénévole du Québec. Our services are divided into four fields of actions:
Volunteer work differs from other types of work by the cost-free nature of our volunteers’ actions. This being said, the volunteers always remain free to choose the clientele to help or to serve, free also in the choice of action, free to share their experiences and abilities and free to choose the length of their involvement.
In this spirit, some volunteers will commit themselves to direct help for individuals; others will prefer to get involved in service organizations, technical support or as administrators.
Promoted values by our organization are : integrity, respect, communication, cooperation, accessibility and diligence.
