Help Make a Difference - Join Our Board

Are you interested in making a big difference in the lives of LGBTQI refugees? We're looking for motivated and passionate people to join our Board of Directors. We currently have two positions available for a five-month term (April 2015 to Sept 2015) with a possibility for re-election at our AGM in Sept 2015.

Our ideal candidates would be dedicated individuals with diverse experiences and skill sets. No experience with refugee or immigration issues is necessary, although it would be welcomed. We encourage people of colour, people with disabilities, LGBTQI folks, and immigrants or refugees from Halifax, Nova Scotia to apply. Our vision is to create an organization that is as diverse as the clients and communities we serve.

Requirements include a commitment to our mission with a willingness to participate in various tasks such as fundraising, Pride week organization, media/PR, and re-settlement work. Candidates must also be available for monthly evening Board meetings and ongoing committee work - approximately 10 hours a month. (During periods of initial re-settlement extra hours may be required.)

Please send us your resumes/CVs to rainbowrefugee.ns@gmail.com and our Communications co-ordinator, Krista, will be in touch with you.
