Who we are looking for:
The hired employee will support youth, staff and facilitators in providing participants of P10 with programming and events that speak specifically to the most marginalized members of the communities we aim to uplift. This employee, with the youth services co-coordinator, will organize regular programming and events, outreach for the JQY program, and work with all the staff to ensure the upkeep of Project 10 as an organization and to envision our future.
The ideal candidate is someone who has strong connections to LGBTQ2S+ 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 also encourage folks with story-telling experience and knowledge of artistic communities in Tiotia:ke, so called ‘Montreal,’ to apply.
About the organization:
Project 10 is a by and for youth organization. We aim to offer a safe(r) space to youth (14-25) who experience multiple and intersecting oppressions, relating to marginalized sexual and gender identities, including but not exclusively lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, two-spirit, intersex, queer and questioning youth and young adults.
Through advocacy and education, using harm reduction and anti-oppressive approaches, Project 10 aims to facilitate the empowerment of youth at individual, community, and institutional levels with particular emphasis on mental and sexual-well being as well as providing youth with the skills, tools and support to be leaders in their own communities.
Project 10 is located in l’Asterisk, and therefore we share our space with Alterhéros, Jeunesse Lambda, Gender Creative Kids Canada and the Montreal Coalition of LGBT Youth Groups.
Project 10 recognizes the unique contributions of people who experience marginalization or oppression and invites people who are Indigenous, racialized, People of Colour, women, lesbian, bisexual, trans, gender non-conforming, people with disability(es)*, working class, HIV+, previously incarcerated, migrant, in particular to apply. Project 10, as a youth organization, encourages those that are near our age mandate to apply.
(Unfortunately, those under 18 are not eligible, nor are current or recent Project 10 service users**.)
If you wish to be considered for employment equity, you may select the option in the form to apply for this position. 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, but you will have the option if you choose.
*Project 10 is not located in a wheelchair accessible space.
** We define recent service users as people who have active relationships with people currently benefiting from Project 10 programmes or services (with the exception of the Gender Gear program)
