The YMCA of Greater Vancouver is a charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of community, by nurturing the potential of children, teens & young adults, promoting healthy lifestyles, fostering a sense of social responsibility and delivering lasting personal & social change. We are building a community in which a generation of children and families reach their full potential. Our values guide our decision-making and behaviour—we do the right thing, put people first, keep our promises and lead by example.
For over 130 years, we have been part of the community, a place where people of every age and background find the support they need to grow in spirit, mind and body. One of the Lower Mainland’s leading charities, the YMCA of Greater Vancouver provides services in health & fitness, child care, camping, employment & community services to over 120,000 participants annually.
Nature and Scope:
The YMCA Summer Work Student Exchange is a national exchange program offering opportunities for youth to improve their second official language skills (English/French) while gaining important employment experience. Participants, 16 and 17 years of age, travel to another community within Canada – where the other official language predominates – for 6 weeks during the summer. Youth are provided with a homestay and paid employment to deepen the cultural exchange through immersion. They participate in weekly program activities organized by the Local Coordinator in their new community.
The Supervisor Western Canada will be an important member of the national team delivering this program by ensuring regional participant targets through the development of an effective outreach plan. Each year, the Supervisor will hire, orient, train and supervise Local Coordinators that will directly support exchange participants in their host communities, and Support Coordinators who will act as team leads. Through the Local Coordinators, the Supervisor will ensure that youth are also provided with an appropriate summer work placement.
The Supervisor Western Canada is responsible to manage and maintain third party relationships with local employers and local support organizations. The Supervisor promotes YMCA programs to the community, employers, and other individuals and organizations to assist the YMCA in achieving program and strategic outcomes.
In addition to bringing a commitment to YMCA vision and values, the candidate should possess the following competencies:
