Knowledge Philanthropist – Evaluation Plan Developer Required

Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN), Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, Battered Women’s Support Services, BC Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse, Native Courtworker and Counselling Association of BC, and Fraser Health Authority are partners in a project funded by the Community Action Initiative grant.

The three-year project aims to address the impact of child sexual abuse (stemming from the residential school system) in adult survivors and perpetrators in two Coast Salish communities, using educational, counselling, cultural practices and community justice approaches.

Please note that this is a knowledge philanthropist position and is unpaid. In collaboration with the project partners, an evaluator plan developer is required to develop an evaluation plan for the project. This is a 3-month volunteer position. The evaluator is only expected to develop the evaluation plan; we will recruit another knowledge philanthropist to conduct the actual evaluation. A reference can be provided after the evaluation plan is completed, and we can discuss what other non-monetary benefits can be provided.

Desired Qualifications

  • Training and/or experience in project evaluation is an asset
  • Very good verbal and written communication skills, including report-writing
  • Good organizational and time management skills
  • Relevant computer skills, such as word-processing, internet and email
  • Ability to work independently and to collaborate with the project partners and others as needed
  • Experience working with First Nations individuals and/or knowledge of Coast Salish communities and cultures is an asset but not required

Please send a letter of interest and resume, or for more information, contact Vilayvanh at TFN.
