Spend Your Summer With RCRG!

Published January 29, 2024

Sure, vacations are fun, but you know what's even more exciting? A summer job at RCRG!

We're seeking candidates between the ages of 15 and 30 for two full-time roles, both commencing on May 6 and continuing for 12 to 16 weeks.

The first position is a Program Assistant with our Information & Volunteer Centre. Responsibilities include updating the listings in our Community Services Directory, designing promotional materials for local volunteer opportunities, and filling in on our front desk, where you'll assist members of the public in accessing community resources.

Some of your time will also be spent with our Child Care Resource & Referral Centre. Here, you'll gather data for the program's annual child care fee survey, and help out in the Richmond Early Years Library.

The second opening might sound suspiciously like the first - the title, once again, is Program Assistant. This time, however, it's with our Seniors Community Support Services.

The role involves a variety of tasks, from recruiting and screening volunteers, to scheduling client services like transportation, friendly visiting, and light housekeeping. You'll also work with our Family & Friend Caregiver Hub, providing assistance during the program's many workshops and events.

Both positions promise a summer filled with new experiences and opportunities for growth. If you're considering a career in the rewarding, engaging, sometimes challenging, but always interesting non-profit field, RCRG is a great place to start!

Complete job descriptions and application details are available on our website. The final day to apply is February 9.
