Do you enjoy working for positive change on national matters? Does the thought of amplifying a range of voices to advocate for improved community well-being make you smile?

We’re looking for someone to serve as our main point of contact for urban Indigenous youth coordination, organizing and development.

Who we are:

Friendship Centres are Canada’s most significant off-reserve Indigenous service delivery infrastructure. The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) represents the network of friendship centres from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

This job might be for you if:

  • Advocating with and for Indigenous youth across Canada sets your heart on fire;
  • You have an in-depth understanding of issues facing urban Indigenous communities;
  • You are at ease working with others and organizing events.

You will handle:

  • Coordinating NAFC activities related to urban Indigenous youth leadership development, including support for the NAFC Youth Council;
  • Writing reports and proposals for youth initiatives;
  • Developing and maintaining partnerships and stakeholder outreach.

Ability to work in both official languages is an asset. Fluency in an Indigenous language is also an asset.

Tell us about how you match our needs via a resume and cover letter addressed to Jocelyn Formsma, Executive Director, by email to careers@nafc.ca by Sunday January 26, 2020.
