Join the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN) on Friday, May 20, at the Wakefield-La Pêche Centre, as leaders from Quebec’s non-profit community sector tackle the evolving challenge of recruiting, training and motivating new generations of volunteers.

This day-long event features a morning conference with Tara Walker, of John Abbott College, titled
"Engaged volunteers, vital communities: tools for organizational renewal." An afternoon session with Sharmaine Nelles, of the Michaëlle Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement, is titled "Appealing to youth: how do welcome younger generations?"

This event is the fourth of its kind organized as part of QAHN’s 2016 Volunteering Matters regional conference series, which aims to help volunteer-based groups become more proficient managers of their unpaid workforce.

Further Volunteering Matters conferences are scheduled for Gaspé (June 17) and Knowlton (September 23). For more information on these events, contact the QAHN office.
