OrganizationGreater Victoria Women's Shelter Society
Position Director at Large - Greater Victoria Women's Shelter Society Volunteer
Impact Statement The Greater Victoria Women’s Shelter Society is a small non-profit community group with a mandate to provide supportive housing for women and their children. Our current central program is Margaret Laurence House which provides second stage housing and support for mothers and their children leaving situations of intimate partner violence.

We believe that safe housing is a fundamental right.
Description The Greater Victoria Women's Shelter Society (GVWSS) is currently seeking passionate volunteers to join our board of directors! We will be accepting applications all summer.

We generally look for women who can commit to at least two years with the organization and who have flexibility for monthly meetings, as well as 5-10 hours a month for various projects. Additionally, we look for women who have shared values around safe housing, ending violence against women, consensus decision making, and understanding inequality from an intersectional, feminist perspective.

While we don't require a specific skill-set (we feel that any woman who shares our values and willingness to work collaboratively will bring something useful to the table) we are actively seeking members who have experience with board work previously.
