The Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet) is inviting applications for a work experience position based out of the Momentum office in Calgary, AB.
This position is offered through CCEDNet’s CreateAction internship program, which is the only national internship program that provides paid learning opportunities for young people to do community economic development (CED) in their own communities.
The successful candidate will work both with Momentum (a CED organization that delivers programs for individuals living on low-incomes) and Thrive (a CED network focused on promoting and advancing CED in Calgary housed at the Momentum office) to conduct outreach, research, and web-based writing on Community Economic Development.
Community Economic Development is a unique approach to place-based poverty reduction that simultaneously addresses social and environmental concerns while increasing economic opportunities for individuals living on low-incomes.
This program is funded by Service Canada and its intention is to give out-of-school postgraduate youth (15-30 years) who have a career focus in CED a relevant five-month work experience placement. Applicants must be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or a protected person within the meaning of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. This placement is fully subsidized by the Canadian CED Network. This position will provide an hourly wage of $20.00 with an average work week of 37.5 hours.
Reporting to the Community Economic Development Coordinator at Momentum, the Community Outreach Facilitator is primarily responsible for supporting the advancement of Thrive’s and Momentum’s CED research and communications. The successful candidate will also participate in peer learning activities to support the Canadian CED Network.
