For over 40 years CWAV has been working with women and children rebuilding their lives after experiencing violence. We have expanded our services to include victims services; counselling for women, children and men; poverty law advocacy; a pre-employment program; shelter and housing programs; and educational programs such as Teen Healthy Relationships and Men Choose Respect.
With more housing initiatives on the horizon, CWAV Society is poised for growth. We are diving deep into anti-racist practices to ensure that our growth is with and for all peoples of the Cowichan Valley. At this time we are specifically seeking board members who identify as female with lived experience and/or professional backgrounds, who are Indigenous, are from diverse ethnic backgrounds and identities, are post-secondary students, have skills in IT, accounting, governance, social services, legal, and /or volunteer engagement. It takes a village to run a dynamic organization like ours! Please consider bringing your skills and passions to our team.
The Board meets on a monthly basis with committee work done between meetings, including social justice, policy, special events/fundraising, HR, and finance committees.
Interested applicants are invited to submit a letter of interest (or CV with cover letter) that outlines skills and experience you are willing to offer to:
