Learn to build your own computer, benefit the environment, gain job skills, or just come to have fun!
No prior experience of any kind is needed: we will teach you everything you need to know. If you already have relevant skills, that's great too!
We take great pride in being able to teach our volunteers skill sets that are applicable in the real world. You will work with our dedicated staff and other volunteers who are all willing to share and learn new skills with you! Here are some of the tasks you can help with:
+ Electronics Dismantle: Take apart electronics for recycling
+ E-waste Processing: Receive E-waste, process metals, circuit boards, and wire for material recycling
+ Refurbishment: Refurbish computer components and electronics for reuse
+ Building: Build and refurbish desktop and laptop computers
+ Cleaning: Help keep the facility clean
+ Thrift Store: Provide customer service, and help keep the store neat and stocked
+ Open Help Night: Provide free tech support to the community at large
+ Outreach: Promote Free Geek Montreal to the public
If you have skills in other areas or there are other ways you can help us out, let us know!
All new volunteers are required take a 30 minute orientation and safety tour at either 11am or 4pm Saturday-Sunday and agree to adhere to our policies and procedures. No prior signup required. Just arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out a little paperwork.
For volunteers under the age of 14, a parental consent form is necessary, and a parent or guardian must accompany them during the orientation. After the orientation, staff will discuss the possibility of the volunteer participating in Free Geek Montreal activities independently.
We offer classes on a wide range of topics. Try one today!
Free Geek Montreal offers a wide range of classes free to our volunteers and the general public, unless otherwise specified. Classes range from basic introductions to computers, to starting your first website and learning how to program. Check out our class schedule.
