We are volunteers from all over the world, with a small team of staff based in Ottawa to support us in this mandate. We are students, researchers, lawyers, health care professionals, educators, development workers, and most importantly, we are all dedicated activists and human rights defenders.
Together, we work to ensure that the sexual and reproductive rights of all young people are respected, guaranteed and promoted, and strive to secure the meaningful participation of young people in decision-making that affects the lives of young people and adolescents. We do this through advocating, generating knowledge, sharing information, building partnerships, and training young activists.
Under the supervision of the Executive Coordinator (EC), the FAO will be responsible for day-to-day financial tasks as well as organizing logistics for events and other administrative tasks. The FAO is also responsible for supporting the EC in the preparation of financial and annual reports and audits, and, in collaboration with the EC and the Board of Directors (BD), for ensuring the financial integrity of the organization.
This is a full-time position for one year, with an excellent benefits package and the possibility of renewal. The FAO position is based in Ottawa, Ontario and applicants must be able to legally work in Canada and be willing to relocate to Ottawa for the position.
