June 21 – 24, 2024

Join us in supporting the 42st annual St. Jean Baptiste outdoor Greek Festival, taking place on June 21 – 24, 2024, at the Hellenic Community of Greater Montreal, South Shore Region (5220 Grande Allée in St Hubert). Youth Volunteers, ages 13-29, are needed for several tasks including welcoming guests, selling bouncy castle entrance tickets and snacks, servicing the food service station and providing supervision, along with other related tasks supporting the festival. Multiple shifts are available and includes a lunch or dinner break, with a free meal provided to volunteers.

This event attracts a significant number of visitors and is an excellent opportunity to build your leadership and social skills, add volunteer hours to your portfolio and help support the not-for-profit Greek community on the South Shore.
