Role Title: Partner Association Representative for The Federation of Community Social Services (FCSSBC) and the BC Association for Child Development and Intervention (BCACDI)


Role Summary:

The Partner Association Representative will work as a member of a newly formed project team to help ensure member involvement in the CYSN Community-Led Collaboration Project. This project strives to bring community together in some new ways to plan and respond to a significant change in service delivery for children and youth with support needs. The Partner Association Representative will be a champion for the project and the potential it holds for service planning in BC.


Project Description:
The Community-Led Collaboration project is a 2-year strategy lead by the BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres, The Federation of Community Social Services, Inclusion BC, and the BC Association for Child Development and Intervention (“The Collaborative”). This project will focus on facilitating collaboration within communities to help all stakeholders prepare for the pending CYSN Framework implementation process in 2024.


The Project will involve developing and facilitating strategies, including some in-person meetings, to bring community agencies, municipal resources, families, and other community members together. These meetings will discuss the pending framework and identify strategies for how a particular community can meet the expectations of the new framework, with a focus on successfully meeting the needs of the children and youth in their community. The Project will also include other strategies to help communities across the province prepare for the pending changes.


Each of the partner organisations involved in the Community Collaboration project will have a Partner Association Representative (i.e – this position) to support the work of the Project Lead and liaise between the Project Lead, partner associations, and project facilitators.
