Multimedia Designer – Summer Student
Role Description and Responsibilities
The Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (ECVO) supports nonprofit and charitable organizations to build and sustain their volunteer programs and services through resources, networking, and skill development opportunities.
ECVO is a member-based nonprofit organization serving voluntary sector organizations in Metro Edmonton.
ECVO is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging; and strives to be an organization that reflects the rich diversity of our community. ECVO acknowledges the work it does is in Treaty 6 Territory. Together we acknowledge all the many First Nations, Metis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
Mission: Working with the non-profit sector, we convene, build capacity, and amplify our common voice to strengthen collaboration, responsiveness, and resilience.
Vision: ECVO strives for engaged, inclusive, and resilient communities.
Values: Braided together, these five values guide our work and posture in the world.
Collaboration: We believe collaboration, not competition, strengthens our communities and sector partnerships. We support sector organizations to find common ground and discover ways they can share resources and ideas. Internally, we encourage our team to work without silos and find interdisciplinary solutions to common challenges.
Boldness: We seek to be bold in our ideas and in the way we communicate our work because the issues our sector face require honesty and approaches beyond the status quo. We push into uncomfortable places in order to achieve new learnings and opportunities for growth and necessary change.
Adaptability: The sector and society are shifting, and our work at ECVO must respond appropriately. We seek sector transformation that will enhance sector agility and resilience so organizations and their personnel may adapt to the social, environmental, and economic changes of the 21st Century.
Credibility: We conduct our work and relationships in ways that build trust. We aim to fairly, transparently, and accurately represent our members and community so they can rely on our strong voice and reputable programs to achieve their goals.
Just Relationships: Relationship is at the core of everything we do, whether through supporting the development of interpersonal relationships—member to member, mentor to mentee, volunteer to staff—or more macro sector partner relationships. We understand that the way we relate to each other can be marked by inequality and injustice that is structural in nature. In all of our relationships we strive for equality, justice, and reconciliation.
