If you are not interested in a director role, please check our Volunteer Opportunities page for other opportunities or click here for our GENERAL APPLICATION.

Responsibilities:

  • Able to commit to 1 year term and attend 6 meetings per year (can attend remotely)

Do you volunteer with other organizations or have you volunteered in the past? What drives you in your current passion projects, hobbies, your studies or your career? What makes you get up in the morning and do what you do (or what are you looking for if you don't have something that drives you?) Feel free to list resume-type experience here, but please know we are not solely basing our decision on academic or professional achievement. Regardless of whether you are a student, an artist, on mat leave, are just starting your career or 30 years into it, you bring a unique perspective and tremendous value to the table.
Examples include: SPEAKING: facilitating workshops, presentations, representing the organization in the media, training other volunteers. LIVED EXPERIENCE: We are founded by women of colour, those with chronic pain and disability. We also represent non profit and corporate workers. These attributes mean we negotiate the world and work differently, and can offer a unique perspective to all aspects of what FACE BC does. CREATING CONTENT: research, editing, desk top publishing, blogging. EVENTS: contacting potential speakers, hosting in a different town, helping with food and beverage prep, access to printing supplies or the ability to help transport materials to venues. FINANCES: bookkeeping or accounting experience, understanding payroll as an entrepreneur or non profit worker.

We thank everyone for their application. If the board decides to add additional directors, we will be in touch late summer/early fall.
