Our Annual General Meeting is coming up June 29th at 6pm ADT! Are you looking to get more involved with the 2SLGBTQIA+ Community in Nova Scotia? The Youth Project is currently looking for individuals to join the Board of Directors. We are currently accepting applications for new board members to be voted in at the AGM. You must be available for the AGM in order to be eligible for election.
The Youth Project specifically encourages applications from individuals who are passionate in youth-centric work, enthusiastic about advocating for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and who are committed to collaborating with the staff, and the Youth Board to effect essential organizational re-visioning.
Ideal Board applicants carry expertise rooted in community centric values, are focused on platforming youth leadership, and are passionate about anti-racist/anti-oppressive strategic revisioning. Important skills and assets for Board members include, but are not limited to, experience navigating anti-racist / anti-oppressive organizational planning, a background in community-based youth work, communication and teamwork, familiarity with the education system, a background in finances, policy writing and development skills, non-profit/board experience, background in accessibility justice work, legal expertise, literacy of trauma-informed frameworks, and fundraising experience.
If you, or someone you know, are invested in collaboratively building vibrant futures for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth and have experience and knowledge that will help foster an inclusive and caring environment, the Youth Project wants to hear from you. Having dedicated people in these crucial roles will allow the Youth Project the space and stability needed to begin implementing lasting change within this vital community space.

Nomination form will close on June 21st to allow us time to connect with applicants.
