Call Out for Childcare Volunteers

Do you like playing, crafting, or just hanging out with kids? Then you should volunteer with the Montreal Childcare Collective. Right now we are looking for lots of new childcare volunteers!! Becoming a volunteer is a pretty small commitment as you can sign up for as many or as few events as you like.

A bit about us:

The Montreal Childcare Collective aims to offer strategic childcare as a response to the fact that childcare is frequently overlooked, under-appreciated, and unlikely to be prioritized. We want to challenge communities and organizations to consider childcare as a fundamental key to organizing and to making events and the work that they do accessible to both parents and children. Our intentions are to meet the special needs of parents and children, low-income communities, non-status and (im)migrant communities of colour, queer and trans communities, ect.

It all started in 2004, organizing Kids activities for the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair. Since then, we’ve organized kids’ programming for Solidarity Across Borders (SAB) march to Ottawa, two kids’ day camps, a workshop series, various SAB Kidz Days, and has continued to offer awesome kids programming at the Anarchist Bookfair each year! For more information, check out our blog:

So you want to get involved?? Awesome!! Email and we’ll let you know how.
