Campus United, the campus ministry network in British Columbia and Yukon (Pacific Mountain Regional Council) of the United Church of Canada, is seeking individuals to fill the role of Community Connector for a one-year contract on a full/part-time (30 hours/week July-August, 10 hours/week September-May) basis.
There are two positions available at each following school: Simon Fraser University (SFU), the University of British Columbia (UBC), the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), and the University of Victoria (UVic).
The Community Connector position is one of meaningful work centred around social justice, spirituality, communications, as well as individual and systemic learning. We’re seeking curious, innovative, and compassionate young adults to join the inclusive and open-minded campus ministry teams at SFU, UBC, UNBC, and UVic.
Community Connectors will work 30 hours per week July 3rd through Aug 30th (including a week-long retreat focused on Leadership Development July 4th-8th) and an average of 10 hours per week through the 2022-2023 academic year. This position pays $20 per hour. Successful candidates need to be willing to lead in an affirming (meaning LGBTQIA2S+ inclusive) religious community whose values include bold discipleship, daring social justice, and deep spiritualty. Previous experience with (congregational) church community is an asset, but not required.
Community Connectors will lead from their lived reality and post-secondary knowledge and inform the direction of the ministry. Candidates must attend SFU, UBC, UNBC, UVic or their affiliate colleges/schools and fulfill the requirements of the Federal Canada Summer Jobs Program listed below:
· be between 15 and 30 years of age at the beginning of the employment period,
· be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the employment and,
· have a valid Social Insurance Number at the start of employment and be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations.
