Project 10 is looking for a Project Coordinator.
This offer is for a one-year position at 20 hours/week.
Who we are:
Project 10 works to promote the personal, social, sexual, and mental well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, and questioning youth and adults 14-25. Through advocacy and education, using a harm reduction approach, Project 10 aims to facilitate the empowerment of youth at individual, community, and institutional levels with a particular emphasis on supporting individuals and groups who experience multiple and intersecting oppressions. Services are free of charge, confidential and anonymous, and are offered in English and French.
Who we are looking for:
Project 10 is excited to be launching new programming geared towards Black, Indigenous and youth of color with ties to gender and sexual minority identities. The hired employee will support QTBIPOC youth in producing an arts- or digital media- based oral history project (broadly defined) exploring QTBIPOC histories in Montréal. Through conducting research and interviews with community members, the employee and youth will co-create a product that can be shared with the general public. Through participating in creating this project, the youth will build intergenerational community connections as well as leadership and technical arts or media skills.
The ideal candidate is someone who has experience with LGBTQIA and BIPOC communities and a strong understanding of harm-reduction, empowerment-based community practice, and youth-led programming. This person should be able to think and work collectively, but also be self-motivated and self-directed when leading a project. We would like the final project to be tailored to skills of the hired person; therefore we are interested in receiving applications from people with diverse arts and digital media skills. Applicants should briefly specify in their cover letter how they see their particular skills in these areas being used towards the desired outcome.
Project 10 conducts hiring on the basis of employment equity. Employment equity is designed to compensate for the non-existence of a level playing field with regards to people’s experiences and job qualifications, given the structural injustices that affect marginalized groups. These groups include but are not limited to: Black, Indigenous, racialized, People of Colour, mixed-race, migrant, trans, gender nonconforming, people with (dis)ability/ies*, working class, HIV+, women, LGBTQ, and asexual identities. Project 10 also encourages those that are near our age mandate (14-25) apply. (Unfortunately, those under 18 are not eligible, nor are current or recent P-10 service users.)
If you wish to be considered for employment equity, include the following sentence in your cover letter: “I would like to be considered for employment equity.” We do not require applicants to specify the basis on which they are applying for employment equity; you do not need to disclose your reasons if you do not wish to do so.
