5 Good Reasons to Volunteer at the 2015 Quebec Games!

Will you be there to help make the Quebec Games greener?

The finals of the 50th Quebec Games will kick off in Drummondville on February 27, 2015. This provincial competition will transform the region into a hive of activity: close to 3,500 young athletes from all over Quebec will pour in to show off their talents in 22 sports.

How can such a major event be held while respecting the environment and the local community? With the help of the Cascades Green Squad, which is actively recruiting people like you!

Here’s why you should join as a volunteer on the squad:

1. For the environment

You will help divert from landfills the recoverable and compostable materials generated during the Quebec Games. No less than 75,000 meals will be served during the event!

2. For the experience

You will benefit from a unique personal experience, which will give a boost to your resumé.

3. For the team spirit

You’ll have fun working as a team and making a real difference in creating the best Quebec Games possible. You can also make it a family activity by registering together.

4. For a chance to make history

This edition is truly special: it’s the 50th finals of the Quebec Games, which coincides with the 200th anniversary of Drummondville, the city hosting the event.

5. For a fun and exciting atmosphere!

Volunteers from previous editions of the Quebec Games can tell you: getting involved is a positive and stimulating adventure that you’ll always remember.
