Is this you?
Are you motivated by the opportunity to positively impact mental health for young people in Canada? Would you be passionate about helping young people deal with the challenges of growing up in today’s complex, ever-changing, technologically-driven world?
You have a deep understanding of major and individual giving. You are a natural relationship builder and believe that quality partnerships take time to develop. Ideally you have a strong network in Western Canada and are relentless in building your profile within the philanthropic community at large. You are rarely at your desk because you are usually at a donor meeting—or are on the hunt for the next gift.
Kids Help Phone is on a transformational journey, one that will change the landscape of youth mental health in Canada. We cannot do it without a team who are willing to be game changers and help fuel that journey. We need team members that are passionate about making a real difference in young people’s lives. It will take courage. It will take resilience.
