Vantage Point transforms not-for-profit organizations by providing practical learning opportunities, facilitation and advice to the not-for-profit sector in British Columbia.

The Provincial Outreach Coordinator is a new, full-time position at Vantage Point with many opportunities for growth. It is currently a 2-year contract, with hope that it will be a self-funded program before that period is complete.

Working under the direction of the Director of Capacity Development, and closely with the program delivery team, the role will be responsible for managing records, developing materials, communicating with key stakeholders, coordinating events and actively supporting the design and delivery of Vantage Point’s services in those communities. The role will also work closely with the Evaluation Coordinator to develop and implement innovative community mapping and evaluation tools to measure the impact of the project on the ‘not-for-profit ecology’ in those communities.
