Closing Date: Friday, 15 June 2018
(10 days ago)
Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House
Region: Vancouver & Lower Mainland Type: Contract - Full time
Location: Vancouver Salary: 19 - 22 depending on experience

The DTES Neighbourhood House is seeking a motivated individual to continue an inclusive governance and community leadership project called Let's Speak Up!. This project aims to reduce the barriers community members face when choosing to be engaged on the committees and boards of directors that make decisions on their behalf. This project is underscored by the belief that ingrained power structures and exhausted service delivery models can shift by representing and valuing more DTES residents and their lived experience of poverty. Also central to this project is the understanding that current boards must increase their capacity to welcome local voices and that it is not simply residents who must meet their expectations regarding a board members' qualifications, abilities and resources.
Let's Speak Up! is in its second of three years of funding from the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver and needs a coordinator than can expand upon and implement a number of project components developed in the first year.
