Salary $41,600 ($25/hr) - 12-month fixed term contract - 32 hrs/wk
Do you have lived experience as an Indigenous youth or racialized immigrant youth? Are you interested in supporting BIPOC youth leaders in the environmental non-profit sector? We're looking for someone with strong knowledge of anti-racism, decolonizing practices, and youth empowerment through lived experience and/or training and education of any form. Experience with land-based youth education and trauma-informed practice, and some experience in the non-profit sector would be a huge asset in this role. As the Youth Empowerment Specialist, you’ll work closely with the Executive Director to empower BIPOC youth to move into and retain leadership roles at EYA through changes to our programming, operations, and governance. Drawing on input from youth participants, community advisors, and your own lived experience, you’ll lead work to strengthen EYA’s leadership continuum and deepen our anti-racist and decolonizing practices. You’ll also meet regularly with an Indigenous mentor and have opportunities to learn about non-profit management and leadership.
