For over 35 years, Katimavik has enabled more than 35,000 young Canadians to become actively involved in volunteering, for the benefit of their communities. Their time represents over 30 million volunteer hours, which is equivalent to:
- a person working 24/7 for 3360 years;
- all staff working for the Quebec government working for 7 days straght;
- $ 189.6 million in savings for Canada
The Automne cohort has come to an end on a positive note in Rimouski and Quebec City. Katimavik’s 11 eco-interns contributed over 5,000 hours or volunteer work within various environmental organizations and through their community projects.
We would like to congratulate the youth who completed their 3-month Eco-Internship program!
Congratulations to our 5 volunteers for completing the Canadian Youth Leadership program in partenership with the Rupertsland Institute!
The Canadian Youth Leadership program offered in collaboration with the Rupertsland Institute is now complete. Katimavik would like to congratulate the five volunteers who took part in the experience! For the last 5 months, our house in Peterborough, Ontario hosted five Métis youth coming from Alberta. Focused on the development of leadership skills, the girls did wonderful in the community thanks to their multiple implications. Overall, they generously contributed over 3,500 volunteer hours to the city of Peterborough!
Katimavik’ strength is its network!
Our fundraiser is well on its way, and we would like to take a moment to thank all our donors who are helping shape the NEW Katimavik.
The objective of this first fundraising campaign is to raise $ 30,000 to allow more youth to participate in the program, as well as meeting the needs of communities, and ultimately ensuring the sustainability of our program in Peterborough, Ontario.
Fundraising has become part of our reality and we need to mobilize everyone in order to keep providing civic service programs! Make a donation to Katimavik, and you’ll receive a gift-certificate valid for the purchase of natural body care products and cosmetics by DRUIDE.
