About Ending Violence Association of BC
The Ending Violence Association of BC (EVA BC) is a dynamic, solutions-based provincial non-profit association that trains and supports close to 300 anti-violence programs and cross-sector initiatives across BC that respond to gender-based violence (GBV) including sexual and intimate partner violence.
The programs we support include BC’s Community-Based Victim Services (CBVS), Stopping the Violence Counselling (STVC), STV Outreach (STV ORS) and Multicultural Outreach (STV MORS), and Sexual Assault Services (SAS) as well as a number of cross-sectoral coordination initiatives and projects.
We wish to respectfully acknowledge that our office is located on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Reporting to the Director of Cross-Sectoral Services, the Program Lead is responsible for leading projects and initiatives under EVA BC’s Cross-Sectoral Services stream that support anti-violence workers. This position will require project management, organizational and communication skills, as well as a high level of attention to detail. The position works with a variety of stakeholders including anti-violence workers, community partners, funders, and government. The Program Lead works independently as well as collaboratively with EVA BC staff on assigned projects and initiatives focused on gender-based violence, harassment and hate.
The Program Lead (Training) is a full-time position (35 hours per week).
The ideal candidate must have a strong interest in working collaboratively to end gender-based violence. They will have the ability to work from a survivor-centred, trauma-informed, intersectional, gender-inclusive, anti-oppressive perspective, informed by the ongoing impacts of colonization and a commitment to reconciliation.
