About the Role
The Program Assistant will work collaboratively with other staff to perform key roles in the design, promotion, delivery, and evaluation of Be The Change’s educational program. The incumbent will also work with the staff to complete crucial administrative tasks.
Tasks may include but are not limited: brainstorming and supporting the creation of learning resources for youth; designing and piloting workshops and trainings; synthesizing information for a youth audience; online and/or academic research into relevant issues; creating data collection and monitoring & evaluation (M&E) systems; and communications writing.
This is a short-term, full-time, 35/per week position for summer 2021 at a wage of $16.50/per hour. Due to the current circumstances, this is a remote-work position. (However, if restrictions are lifted, there may be an opportunity for Program Assistant(s) to work at our office in Vancouver, B.C.) The ideal start date would fall between April 26 and May 10, 2021. The length of the position will be 16-weeks. This position is partially funded by the Canada Summer Jobs program (see eligibility criteria below).
