My experience volunteering with Britepaths was disorienting and disappointing. A program manager there initially brought me on board in January 2024 to assist with bilingual office administration 1 afternoon per week, but after the 3rd visit, I was notified that the manager I had been working with wasn't at Britepaths any longer. I had received no negative feedback or comments. A different, senior program manager, emailed me to express their appreciation for my willingness to volunteer, confirmed their understanding of my one-afternoon-per-week schedule, and confirmed a continuing training session for the following Thursday afternoon. On the day of, that session was rescheduled for the week after, and when I came in, a 3rd, different Senior Program Manager "suggested" I find somewhere else to volunteer. There was no room for further discussion. I left feeling like they chewed me up and spit me out, and ultimately regret getting involved with Britepaths.
