Who We Are
Founded in 2008, Canadian Roots Exchange is a national Indigenous youth-led organization. We envision a future where Indigenous youth are empowered and connected as dynamic leaders in vibrant and thriving communities. We collaborate with communities to provide programs, grants and opportunities that are grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing and being and designed to strengthen and amplify the voices of Indigenous youth.
CRE is a workplace that puts its employees and community first. We are a living wage employer and believe in prioritizing a healthy work-life balance. We provide opportunities for flexible working hours, time off for ceremony and other life responsibilities and we actively respond to the accessibility needs of those who work with us. We are a results-oriented working environment, choosing to focus on achieving objectives, rather than promoting the status quo.
Purpose of Position
CRE’s Centre for Indigenous Policy and Research is launching its third cohort of the Indigenous Youth Policy School (IYPS). The School provides space for Indigenous youth (aged 18-29) to engage with peers through interactive in-person and online sessions on a local and national level. The IYPS program is designed to meet the needs of each individual student’s strengths through a flexible curriculum and continuous support to ensure their version of success throughout the program is achieved. It is a tuition-free program with no academic or professional requirements. Indigenous youth are given the tools to ensure their priorities are advanced and perspectives are reflected in policies that matter most to them.
As we expand our national presence, we are looking for Policy School Facilitators to support the growth of our Policy School. Your tasks include:
This role may require the successful candidate to travel 1-2 times a year within Canada, with periodic evening and weekend work. CRE will cover the pre-approved cost of travel associated with this role. Please note, some weeks you may work less than 10 hours, and others may be less. Accurately tracking and submitting weekly hours will be the responsibility of the selected applicant.
