Training and Contract Opportunity  

Facilitator for Young Women’s Gender Violence Awareness & Healthy Sexuality Program 

The North Shore Women’s Centre works to improve the social, economic, legal and political status of women, and to encourage and support self-empowerment by acting as a resource and a catalyst for change, from feminist perspectives. The organization runs a drop-in resource centre and offers a wide range of programs and services. We provide over 7,000 service contacts per year to individuals from diverse backgrounds across the community.

Position Summary  
Facilitators will deliver (in pairs) a 12-hour gender violence awareness/healthy sexuality program to young women aged 16 – 19. This evidence-based program educates young women on the extent and nature of gender violence in their communities, trains them to recognize and call out rape culture when they see it, and teaches them to support other young women. It also teaches positive sexuality & relationships and emancipatory sexual assault resistance.
Facilitators must be available for 6 days of training, between the last week of April and first week of May (exact dates TBD). Training is a prerequisite for program delivery and is provided to successful candidates free of charge. Facilitators who successfully complete the training session are guaranteed payment for the delivery of at least two sessions in the following year, or equivalent financial remuneration.
