Description

Do you believe in community-based support? We do too!

The Canadian National Institute of the Blind (CNIB) is looking for a Volunteer Co-Facilitator for the Men's Peer Support Group. This group connects men living with sight loss to discuss issues, personal struggles and possible solutions with others who understand what they’re going through. Often featuring professional guest speakers in the technology, health, transit, and policing industries, the members of the Men's Group aim to gain new knowledge with each meeting.

Because of the nature of this group, we are only selecting male volunteer candidates. Additionally, as this is a volunteer position, it is unpaid.

In this role, a Volunteer Co-Facilitator is responsible for identifying and booking guest speakers, planning and coordinating bi-monthly meetings, coordinating with the Group's other Co-Facilitator, and facilitating discussion at the meetings.

Since forming over 100 years ago, CNIB Peer Support Groups have been an important part of our commitment to client support. Many of our Volunteer Peer Support Facilitators work with groups on a long term basis, helping build stronger communities from the ground up.

The Men's Peer Support Group meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The meetings are held in the CNIB Edmonton Office at 11150 Jasper Ave, Edmonton, T5K 0C7.

Join the CNIB Volunteer team as a Co-Facilitator, and help those in your community who are living with sight loss.

To apply for this volunteer position, please email abnvolunteers@cnib.ca or call 780-453-8322.
