A little introduction to our newest team member..

Hello!

My name iPerson with one curl showing, wearing black rimmed glasses, a green hat, and a striped black shirt. They are smiling and staring at the camera.s Otto and I will be the new Fundraising and Finance Administrator at Project 10. I am a friendly but shy homebody who has been living in Montreal for the past 9 years. I started volunteering at Project 10 when I was an undergraduate at McGill and I’m excited to be back after a few years of gaining experience working for different nonprofits around the city. You can rely on me to answer questions about our budget or get that FUNdraiser planned! Now, because I’ve been out of the office for more than 5 years, I’m going to need your help getting re-oriented around here. Could you help me out by filling out this quick survey telling me what you love about P10?

Drop by our offices whenever we’re open, and don’t hesitate to come introduce yourself if I’m typing away at my computer. Even though I’m always busy, I am always up for a quick chat especially if you want to practice ASL or share kitty pics! And if that doesn’t work- call me, beep me, if you want to reach me! coordoprojet10@gmail.com or on our Admin line.

It’s so nice to meet you!

Heyy!!!!

Hey everyone! I’m Jodie-Ann, the new Social Work intern from McGill. I’ll be here on Tuesdays from 12-6 and Thursdays for drop-in until April (YAYYY) if you all want to chat. I’ll be doing group activities and soon I’ll be taking individual appointments, too! I’m super into talking about gender, sexuality and race, and how they all come together. I’m also here to chat with you about relationships, school/work stress and other daily life stuff you may need to talk about. Come say hi!!

 

PS: I love cats so please bring me pictures of your cats if you have (or pictures of any cat, to be honest).

PPS: I love to write poetry so we can chat about that too if you want to know about places in Montreal to share your art.

Hey hey! Look at that new face!

I’m Marion, newly intern in sexology for P10. I’m a soon-to-be bachelor at UQÀM, and I’ll have the chance to work with this wonderful team for almost a year (until april). Woohoo! I will do group activities, and will soon take individual appointments as well. I’ll be there if you have questions about sexual orientation, gender identity, contraception, sexual health, relationships, and sexuality in general, or if you just want to talk. My schedule is tuesday from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm, wednesday from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm and thursday from 6:30 pm for the drop-in. Don’t hesitate to pass by! Hope to meet you!

See you!
