We are currently seeking applications for the Outreach Program Manager position here at the MacPhee Centre. As the Outreach Program Manager, you will have the opportunity to creatively lead and build on the work that happens outside of our 50 Queen St. location in Downtown Dartmouth. This includes the programming and relationship building that happens with our stakeholders within Halifax and the Colchester region of the province.
In performing this role, you must be knowledgeable of a wide range of program development and community building best practices. You must also be able to evaluate issues and can relate effortlessly to all of our stakeholders including youth, school staff, parents and community program partners. Ideally, you have an understanding of our community’s current economic and social climate and recognize the issues that impact the growth and well-being of its youth and families. Moreover, you have experience in supporting youth.
As a predominantly white organization, MacPhee Centre wants to be intentional about representation in supporting the youth we serve. Over the past several years we have become dedicated in supporting marginalized communities. All staff and volunteers at the MacPhee Centre are working together on breaking barriers that perpetuate racism and oppressive environments. We are striving to create equitable opportunities for all. Our intention is to increase our capacity in supporting youth through representation and lived experience. In an effort to honour our diversity and inclusion commitments, diversify and strengthen our organization preference will be given to Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour applicants.
