UnstoppableMe has been growing and evolving constantly since its foundation in 2015. To ensure continuity as a self-sustainable organization, the leadership team has decided to launch this 3-tier membership scheme in January 2020. The messaging system will continue to be used for quick communications, job postings, motivational quotes, and general discussions about our journey in Canada. The change from WhatsApp to Telegram was decided because of its better features and capabilities to administer membership and messaging.
We are a non-profit community of professionals who believe in Paying It Forward. Our programs, volunteering opportunities, and membership are not restricted to Permanent Residents, Convention Refugees or Canadian citizens. You could join us having a Work Permit or Student Permit, or from abroad if you are currently waiting for your visa to get approved.
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and attach your resume, one of us will reach out to you to explain the options.
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.
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.
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!
