All About interVivos | Focus on Not For Profits
interVivos is non-partisan and a registered not-for-profit. interVivos is a Latin word that means “from one person to another.”
We are a group of Edmonton and region volunteers who cultivate leadership and want to impact our community. Our dialogue, engagement, mentorship programs, and events have brought people together from all backgrounds since 2006.
Our mentorship program usually runs twice per year, and we bring together people from all backgrounds. Our mentors and protégés work on various things, such as personal growth and development, leadership, workplace challenges, career changes, building networks, questioning comfort zones, and work-life effectiveness. Volunteer mentors donate their time; protégés pay between $50-$70 (sliding scale) to participate in the program. The funds cover program costs as we are entirely non-profit and volunteer-run. We also offer at least one free protégé spot per program to a community organization.
Community engagement events are an opportunity for attendees to get informed about issues that matter to them. Typically each event hosts speakers on topics that range from civic engagement to current affairs. As well, each occasion provides the opportunity for attendees to engage with each other and the speakers. Our discussions are non-partisan but frequently include topics that can be political. For example, some of our past events include the #metoo movement, elections, and Indigenous issues.
We would love for you to get more involved with interVivos. You can add your name to our mailing list at www.intervivos.ca, so you don’t miss the details of our upcoming programs and events. We build our roster of mentors from community recommendations. Perhaps you’d like to be a volunteer mentor? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
