As part of Volunteer Week, Actions Interculturelles will highlight the young leaders of the Dialogue Plus project, drawing attention to volunteer initiatives undertaken over the past year. The goal of their Dialogue Plus is to strengthen social and intercultural dialogue, to prevent socio-cultural discrimination, prejudice and radicalization, and to promote the establishment of win-win conditions for a harmonious society. The theme for Volunteer Week this year is ‘I volunteer, you volunteer, let's combine our volunteerism!’ Throughout 2017-2018, 150 young people aged between 15 and 30-years-old volunteered in more than 50 different initiatives locally. Thanks to the realization of those initiatives, which rely on dialogue, the young leaders managed to unite the Sherbrooke community by bringing the participants to see that in the end, we are more alike than we think, a rewarding experience for young people.
