The New Canadians Centre Peterborough (NCC) is seeking volunteer Board Directors.
As the local settlement agency, the New Canadians Centre Peterborough strives to empower immigrants and refugees to become full and equal members of Canadian society, and to provide community leadership to ensure cultural integration in a welcoming community.
The NCC serves more than 800 newcomer clients annually and takes an active role in community development. Throughout the past two years, the resettlement of Syrian refugees was a main focus of the Centre, but its programs include settlement, employment and youth services, language assessment for newcomers, and community development. The NCC is one of the founding organizations of the Peterborough Immigration Partnership.
The NCC believes in diversity; we encourage community members with different cultural backgrounds and of all ages to apply, who are able and willing to give 4-8 hours per month of their time for this valuable work. We are specifically looking for volunteers with settlement, community development, finance and/or housing backgrounds for the Board and various Board Committees (Finance, Policy, Recruitment, Governance). Board members would have the opportunity to participate in fund development activities that are meaningful to them.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and resume including 2 references (in 1 document) before March 31, 2019, to [email protected]
Questions can be directed to Dr. Shelina Manji, Chair of Board Recruitment Committee: [email protected]
Upon request, the New Canadians Centre will provide reasonable accommodation for disabilities to support participation of candidates in all aspects of the recruitment process.
