Join us at Quartier des générations and contribute to a multicultural, multigenerational living environment by participating in social activities and winter events.

Volunteer camp project


Le Quartier des Générations is looking for volunteers who want to develop positive relationships with their clientele of independent senior citizens. The group will help plan and run the centre’s yearly winter festival, as well as participate in various activities such as adapted winter sports, social events, and mealtime with an intercultural group of seniors who have varying degrees of independence and mobility.



  • Plan and participate in the centre’s yearly winter festival

Le Quartier des Générations is an innovative and community-oriented seniors’ residence. It allows people from different generations and backgrounds to meet through its collective spaces, diverse social activities and adapted housing options. With its unique approach, the organization wants to inspire other senior living environments across Quebec to truly meet the needs of a varied clientele.

Camp characteristics

Volunteers will sleep in a brand new community room. They will have access to a cafeteria service on weekdays, will have to cook their own meals on weekends, and will have multiple opportunities to share meals with the centre’s senior population.
