START DATE: on-going
REPORTS TO: Coordinator
Summary of Responsibilities
At Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC (BGC), we believe that every kid is amazing. And we know that by seeing and hearing them, they’ll believe it too! To kids, their Club feels like a place where they can hang out with friends, and make some new ones, but it is so much more than that. It’s a safe place that provides them with three of the things that they need most: a sense of belonging, a sense of success, and positive relationships.
Activity Leaders are people who believe in kids, and want to help them achieve their full potential. They are people who are studying a diverse range of disciplines, from teachers and social workers, to nurses and police officers. Activity leaders develop strong, caring, relationships with the children and youth in the Clubs, while leading fun and engaging programs. They provide mentorship, guidance, and support, as kids build confidence, develop leadership skills, make healthy choices, and increase the likelihood that they will finish school.
We offer a starting wage of $15/hour, flexible schedules, on the job training, a team based approach, and a fun working environment. We are currently recruiting for positions in our Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver, Delta and Richmond Club locations.
Thanks in advance to all persons who apply for this position. Please note that only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
BGC recognizes the value and importance of building and sustaining a culturally diverse environment and commits to intentional efforts to reflect that (along with our values) in all that we do. BGC has always been committed to diversity, and we believe that articulating our commitment to it in this way will support the ongoing evolution of this in our work going forward.
For employees, participants, volunteers, donors, and the community, we demonstrate that commitment through:
- Recruitment, employment, development, and promotion practices that are barrier free
- Encouraging representatives of diverse identities (race, national or ethnic origin, language, spiritual beliefs, age, gender, sexual identity, marital status, family structure, political beliefs, mental or physical ability, or socioeconomic status) to apply for available positions, participate in programs, and/or engage with BGC
- Making decisions based solely on an individual’s qualifications, merit, performance, and organizational needs
