Covid-19 Update for 2021-2022:

Following Quebec government's new provincial guidelines released in June 2021, the island of Montreal and its surroundings are in a Level 1 (Vigilance) Green Zone, which means:

  • A maximum of 50 people in outside gatherings, with physical distancing

  • A maximum of 25 people in interior gatherings, with physical distancing and mandatory face coverings

 

Beyond Me's executive team has revised the situation and made the following decisions:

Meetups between Mentors & Mentees

  • Outside gatherings: We strongly encourage choosing outside gatherings for meetups between mentors and mentees. It is still relatively comfortable and hot outside, and Montreal has many parks at citizens' dispositions for activities, picnics, dances, plays, sports! Please remember to maintain a physical distance between each other.

  • Inside gatherings: Though we strongly encourage outside meetings rather than indoor meetings, if both the mentors, the buddies and their families formally agree on in-person meetings with physical distancing and mandatory facial coverings, we will not interfere. 

  • Remote gatherings: The COVID-19 virus spreads like wildfire and can be very threatening to one's health and being. We encourage mentors and buddies to meet via Zoom and engage in activities that will stimulate one's social skills, cognitive skills, language skills, physical and motor skills, etc. We, as a team, are always here for support and to give you ideas of new games and activities to do via remote location.

 

*We will not be responsible for any health-related issue that may result as a consequence of these outside or in-person meetings. It is up to the mentors and the buddies & their families to fully acknowledge the possible repercussions that may occur as a result of their actions. 

Group Events and Meetups:

 

  • For the year 2021, we will try to organize in-person meetings. Our events will be first come first serve, since there is a person limit. Additionally, there will be vaccine requirements for meetups. We will follow up with the requirements before the events.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us: montrealbeyondme@gmail.com

We are here with each and everyone of you, every step of the way.

Thank you for your consideration,
