National Volunteer Week

It’s National Volunteer Week!

April 15 – 21, 2018 is National Volunteer Week and Sagesse is especially grateful to all our volunteers who donate their time to empower individuals experiencing domestic violence across Alberta. Over the past year, more than 150 volunteers have donated more than 5000 hours to empowering individuals, organizations and communities to break the cycle of violence. Their generosity has impacted over 700 people as part of our mission to break the cycle of violence.

Volunteers at Sagesse wear many hats: They assist with delivering our peer support programs dedicated to empowering women who may be at risk of, or are experiencing abuse; they help with administrative tasks in our office; they participate in community events on behalf of Sagesse to help raise awareness around our programs and initiatives – just to name a few things! In short, we don’t know what we’d do without our wonderful volunteers, so we want to say a very big THANK YOU!

Sagesse is always looking for volunteers who have a passion for giving back and a love for curating healthy relationships to end domestic violence.
