OneSky Community Resources
Board of Directors
Are you interested in using your knowledge, compassion and leadership skills to build a vibrant and inclusive community? Then we want you!
OneSky Community Resources (formerly Penticton and District Community Resources Society) provides supports and services to children and families, youth, adults and seniors throughout the South Okanagan and Similkameen. We have been serving the community for over 50 years.
We seek volunteers with a wide range of skills and experience for a limited number of Board positions. Previous board and governance experience is desirable but not essential. A background in human resources and business, advocacy and government relations, finance and accounting, law, fundraising and/or marketing are all necessary skills to support the work of the Board.
The ideal candidate:
- is committed to the OneSky Community Resources mission and values
- has good self-awareness and understanding of cultural safety and cultural humility
- is willing to provide six to eight hours a month of their time and talents
The OneSky Community Resources Board provides vision and strategic direction to over 20 diverse social and health programs in south Okanagan-Similkameen communities. Services include: childcare programs for children from birth to 12 years, including children with special needs (Little Triumphs and Tuc El Nuit childcare, Hand in Hand and Oliver High School infant/toddler care, and After School programs), a wide range of supports for youth and families (Integrated Family Development and Counselling services); programs and housing for adults with disabilities; and Better at Home for seniors. OneSky Community Resources also partners with other community organizations to provide other housing and health services.
We welcome those from all parts of our community and particularly encourage people from our smaller communities, Indigenous communities, and rural areas to apply.
Please indicate your interest by downloading, completing and submitting a completed Board Application, in confidence to Marsha.Lacroix@OneSkyCommunity.com. We need to receive your application by April 23, 2021.
