Delta Family Resource Centre is a community-based agency which has served communities in North-West Toronto for more than 40 years. Acknowledging the consequences of intersecting forms of oppression on the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities, Delta Family Resource Centre offers programs, services and supports for Black and other priority populations in Northwest Toronto which amplify their resilience and strengths. As a multi-ethnic, multi-site organization, Delta Family provides a responsive range of programs, services and activities for families, children, youth and seniors. Committed to anti-oppression and inclusive ways of engaging participants, Delta Family works to be a part of a healthy, engaged and empowered community where all people thrive. A neighbourhood-based agency, Delta Family provides a hybrid workplace, and some in-person work is mandatory.
Delta Family is seeking diverse (in age, gender, and ethnicity) School and Family Advocates to design, develop and deliver the highly-targeted, community-based and culturally relevant advocacy supports tailored to the needs of Black students and families (“the Services”). These services are funded under the Black Youth Action Plan (BYAP) Student and Family Advocates (SFA) Initiative.
The successful candidate will provide advocacy supports, culturally relevant mentorship, navigational supports, referrals, sessions on anti-Black racism benefitting Black students (ages 6-25) and their families in the BYAP catchment area of Greater Toronto, Hamilton and the region of Peel. Advocacy supports will be provided in the Region of Peel (the municipality of Brampton) and Toronto’s Rexdale, Firgrove/Jane-Finch, and Kingsview Village neighborhoods. Partners include Dixon Youth Rise and Firgrove Learning Innovation Community Centre.
Work is currently hybrid. As a community-based organization committed to working with the local communities, staff members are currently required to work at least 2 days in person – for without community, there is no Delta Family.
This is a full-time position.
The application deadline is August 3, 2023. Applications will be processed as they are received.
