Becoming involved at L'Arche will profoundly impact your life! You will be welcomed into a loving community where you will be appreciated and where your presence can make a difference.
Please note that a criminal records check is required for all assistants, employees and volunteers at L'Arche Lethbridge.
Our teams of 4-5 live-in assistants in each home are key to keeping our mission and identity alive and well! Assistants come to L'Arche Lethbridge from right here in town and around the world. Some come for a year of service; others make a lifelong commitment as members of the L'Arche Lethbridge Community. For information about becoming an Assistant at L'Arche Lethbridge please look under "Become Involved."
Respite Worker/Casual Relief
L'Arche Lethbridge employs a pool of respite workers who help to support the life in our homes when our live-in assistants are away. To apply (and for more information about respite/casual work) please look under "Become Involved." You are also welcome to contact Marie directly at 403-328-3735 x3 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awake Overnight Position
L'Arche Lethbridge employs two to three people for awake overnight shifts (permanent full time, permanent part time, and casual respite). Awake overnight workers are responsible for supporting the overnight needs of three individuals with an intellectual disability including personal care as well as some light housekeeping. If you are capable of creating positive, caring relationships with adults with disabilities and are also realiable and responsible, (and most importantly, willing to stay awake all night) this could be a great fit for you. There are currently no openings for overnight positions, however, we are happy to keep applications and résumés of interested individuals on file and regularly approach such persons when positions do become available. Please send your cover letter and résumé to Marie at email@example.com or call 403-328-3735 x3.
L'Arche Lethbridge is building a team of Volunteer Handy Persons. If you know the difference between a Robertson and Philips screwdriver, can cut a board straight with a saw, and know how to lay paint with a roller we want to hear from you.
