Call for Journey Home Society Board of Directors

The Journey Home Society Board of Directors is responsible for guiding and overseeing the Society’s activities in its role as a “backbone” organization focused on coordinating the implementation of the Journey Home Strategy. The organization will be primarily responsible for building the capacity of, and promoting collaboration between, charitable, non-profit, all levels of government, and community and private sector organizations in meeting the needs of the local homeless population in Kelowna and the surrounding area. Together with all stakeholders the Society will provide the local leadership needed to create a coordinated and accessible system of care for those who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of losing their home.

Board members will be required to attend regularly scheduled meetings starting early in 2019.  A number of terms will be available: one, two, and three year terms.

To ensure the success of Journey Home it will be critical for the Board membership to display a diversity of perspectives and core qualities.  As a result, the Society is looking to strengthen the Board by utilizing a matrix selection process that ensures that there is a broad range and diversity of skills, knowledge and experience within the overall membership.

If you are looking for a fulfilling volunteer opportunity where you contribute to building a community working towards ensuring that every citizen has a place to call home, if you have the qualities and skills that align with the Journey Home Society’s mission and if you are passionate about working in a collaborative an inclusive framework to address homelessness, we look forward to receiving your completed application.

Submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 15, 2018.
