Board of Directors posting: New Board Posting (Oct 2 '20) (eya.ca)
What we do: EYA engages youth in Vancouver, BC, targeted by systemic barriers to become environmental stewards. We provide trauma-informed, land-based education and paid job training programs that engage youth to connect with nature, community, and skills through hands-on activities like growing native plants, stewarding urban wildlife habitat, and learning about plants as food and medicine. Our programs braid ecology and Indigenous knowledge systems through visits from Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers. Find out more about our team and work: www.eya.ca
What you’ll do: As a Board Member at Large, you’ll work with other EYA directors to provide proper governance and oversight to the organization. You’ll also use your knowledge, skills, and lived experience to support EYA staff as we actively work to develop and decolonize our youth programs, operations, and fundraising.
I've served on this board for the past 4 years. Feel free to ask me questions about what we do, what a board does, the youth we serve, etc.
