Our Collective has been working together through a visioning process for the last three years in designing an approach to Workforce Development focused on NEET+ youth from Jane-Finch that supports individuals in a holistic way. Our working goal is that, by 2033, 1,000 multi barrier, racialized NEET+ Jane-Finch youth between the ages 16-29 will progress on their personal pathway and have a career plan leading to gainful employment. The Collective’s workforce development framework focuses on two key levers:
a) Community Coordination – Developing a more coordinated system between employment stakeholders to increase the systems efficiency and address current barriers faced by youth with employment service providers, while simultaneously engaging in community advocacy, and aligning community resources.
b) Pathway Coaching – Adopting a Pathway Coaching model that supports our priority youth population in attaining their desired outcomes in terms of both personal and professional goals.
The Project Manager will work closely with the Collective’s members to support the creation and execution of the Launch Phase of our initiative in order to prepare for a successful Execution phase immediately following. The successful candidate will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating all aspects of the Launch Phase with particular emphasis on addressing identified gaps within the Community Coordination lever of our initiative. Our hope is that the Project Manager will be able to transition to the Community Coordinator at the Execution phase.
Salary: $37.50 per hour for 35 hours a week. ($68,250 per annum, six-month contract with high probability of being extended beyond that period.)
