Volunteer with Us!

Nos bénévoles sont géniaux! Ils sont au cœur de notre organisation. Ce sont eux qui permettent à WALKSAFE de fonctionner chaque jour afin que l'on puisse accompagner en toute sécurité chaque étudiant de McGill ou habitant de Montréal qui désire ne pas marcher seul le soir. Ce sont eux également qui accompagnent les enfants vers leur garderie.

Si améliorer la sécurité au cœur de Montréal et de McGill t'intéresse, que tu aimes aider les autres, et que tu aimes marcher, alors WALKSAFE est surement la communauté pour toi!
