What We’re Looking For

Because of our commitment to youth community engagement, we are looking for youth members (18-26) and  non-youth members (26+) to be a part of our Board of Directors.

Interested candidates should expect to commit 10-15 hours per month to Youth Line matters over a 2-year term. Apart from this, we are looking for those with existing skills or a strong interest in building experience in the following areas:

  • Financial management
  • Fundraising (event planning, brainstorming, grant writing, etc.)
  • Program Planning and Evaluation
  • Policy
  • Human Resource knowledge

What to Include in the Application:

1. Full contact information (name, e-mail, phone)

2. Resume

3. And ONE of the following:

i) Cover letter/introduction detailing why you are interested in working with the LGBT Youth Line

OR

ii) A one-page statement explaining your thoughts on the challenges that face LGBTQ youth today

The LGBT Youth Line only considers applicants that identify as part of the LGBTTIQQ2SA community. Grounded in principles of Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression, we recognize and encourage applications from communities that are further marginalized and underrepresented on boards, including: Indigenous people, people of African/Caribbean/Black descent, people of colour, Trans-feminine people, people living with disabilities, people with experiences of migration, and people who have experiences of poverty. We particularly welcome applicants from these communities who are youth (under the age of 26). Applicants are encouraged to self-identify in their cover letters or one-page statements, which will be kept confidential.

*Note: we are not currently accepting applications to be on the Board of Directors*
