Where is your office?2019-12-14T17:27:25-05:00
We do not have a physical office. Our leaders and volunteers work virtually most of the time and get together in face-to-face meetings as needed.
What’s your phone number?2019-12-14T17:27:15-05:00
Since we don’t have a physical office, we don’t have a fixed phone number. When you join as a member or volunteer, you provide us with your contact information. Then, one of our volunteers will contact you via email, phone or WhatsApp. Most of our work is done virtually using various collaboration tools; that’s why we don’t really need a single phone number.
Will you give me a job?2019-12-14T17:27:06-05:00
Our organization is built and sustained by volunteers only. We exist to help professionals achieve their goals in Canada; however, we do not give jobs to people. We provide people with the tools, activities, support and networks that may lead to getting a job. For example, by volunteering, you can build skills/experience as well as a network. Or when you do our Mentoring Program, your mentor will guide your job search efforts. These factors will likely help in accelerating your process of getting a job.
What’s the difference between a Member and a Volunteer?2019-12-14T17:26:24-05:00
MEMBER: If your goal is to participate in our Programs for newcomers and create a plan to develop your career in Canada, you can join UnstoppableMe as a Member. You’ll receive our regular communications and take part in our awesome community of professionals. VOLUNTEER: If your goal is to be involved in a community to help others, offer your talents and share your expertise, Volunteering is your path! You will bring new ideas, meet other volunteers, and work with us so that our organization can achieve its Vision.
What volunteer roles are available?2019-12-14T21:41:04-05:00
Check the Volunteer Opportunities page to learn about the open positions. Sometimes we have other roles that are not published, and this depends on the activities going on at the time you join. Please also check the NOW page, which lists all the current activities. We're open to hearing your ideas on how you can help us!
As a Volunteer, do I need to be physically present at all times?2019-12-14T21:33:15-05:00
We don’t have a physical office and most of our work can be done via email or phone. However, the Volunteer Manager may conduct a face-to-face or video interview after you contact us, to get to know you and see how our positions match your career goals.
How many hours do I need to dedicate as a Volunteer?2019-12-14T21:30:59-05:00
In general, it would be anywhere from 2 to 10 hours per week. The time commitment depends on the role we assign you. Some of our events are “one-offs” such as workshops, and some projects have a temporary duration (one to six months). Other roles are long term, for example, the social media team posts content every week. We encourage you to first think what skills and experience you want to contribute, and discuss the options with the Volunteer Manager.
I’ll move to Canada in a few months. Can I volunteer from abroad?2019-12-14T21:27:51-05:00
Yes you can! While the tasks may be limited, we do have opportunities to work virtually, e.g. in the social media team. If you send us an inquiry via email (hi@unstoppableme.rocks) and attach your resume, one of us will reach out to you to explain the options.
Are there rules or guidelines to be a Volunteer?2019-12-14T21:29:40-05:00
The main rule we have is “bring your best self, be willing to try new things, and communicate proactively with the team!” Only in cases your work requires to access personal information of other members or volunteers, you’ll be asked to sign a Confidentiality Agreement.
Do you give immigration advice or sponsor visas for Canada?2020-01-01T09:32:23-05:00

Do I need to be a PR, refugee or Canadian citizen to get involved?2019-12-15T11:54:34-05:00
