VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN (VAW) COORDINATOR
Riverdale Immigrant Women's Centre (RIWC) is seeking a creative, dynamic VAW Coordinator who uses a community development, feminist and anti-oppression approach to counselling. The Coordinator will supervise, collect and maintain program records and deliverables and participate in innovative program development. Referrals, advocacy, outreach and strategic community partnership development are integral program components. At the policy and community level, the Coordinator will encourage and support women to engage in broader social change activities that address women’s safety, women’s equality and equity issues.
Over and above individual, crisis, and group counselling, the Coordinator will support the women in their journey to choose a life free from violence using a broad holistic approach that integrates self-development and self-care, health and well- being as well as supporting their economic empowerment.
For women who are looking to achieve economic self-sufficiency, the Counselor will develop a collaborative plan of action, skill building, life skills support, computer training and job placements.
