Join Our Board of Directors

We are presently seeking individuals with governance, fundraising, and leadership experience to join our Board of Directors.

Our core values are grounded in our feminist roots, believing in equity for all. We embrace the opportunity to combine our talents, skills, and knowledge to provide compassionate and responsive services in our community.

We are looking for skilled individuals to support the governance mandate of our organization. We recognize that lived experiences from all facets of life provide valuable insights and knowledge, and recognize that many skills are gained outside of paid employment. With that in mind, we encourage all with an interest in a governance volunteer role to submit an application, regardless of employment experience.

Experience and knowledge in one of the following areas is greatly appreciated:

  • Leadership experience
  • Governance in a non-profit environment
  • Financial management
  • Fundraising
  • Strategic planning
  • Knowledge of the demographics and cultural contexts within the Four Counties
  • Knowledge in Violence Against Women (VAW) and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention, feminism, and community engagement
  • Knowledge of Ontario’s Action Plan to End Sexual Violence and Harassment

We are seeking individuals who are strongly aligned with our mission and values and can play an important role in helping us continue to develop and grow as we strive to meet the needs of our four counties. Board members must be team players with strong communication skills, along with a vested interest in our communities.

The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre Board of Directors typically meets 10 – 12 times a year, with additional committee work. Board meetings generally happen monthly on a weekday evening, with virtual attendance possible for all board and committee meetings.

Board Directors must live or work in the four counties of Peterborough, Haliburton, Northumberland and City of Kawartha Lakes.

Committed to attracting and retaining a diverse Board of Directors, we aim to honour your experiences, perspectives and unique identity. Together, we strive to create and maintain a Board environment that is inclusive, equitable and welcoming.
