Are you an experienced Program Manager? Are you looking for your next opportunity – one where you can work with fantastic people, grow and develop your career, and make a real difference?

At, we’re working towards a Canada where all young people understand how to take care of their own mental health and be there for each other. We envision a Canada without shame, where all those that need support get the help they deserve. It’s an ambitious goal, and we’re making big moves in the next few years to bring us closer to it.

This means that our programs team is growing and evolving, and we’re looking for the right person to join our management group and help us be the best we can be.

In this role, you would:

  • Report to the Director of Programs & Evaluation
  • Manage a team of 3-5 Program Coordinators, ensuring they are well-equipped to be at their most effective as they work with young people across the country to revolutionize mental health
  • Work alongside other Program Managers to promote team cohesion, share learnings, and surface issues
  • Work with the programs team, including the Director of Programs & Evaluation, to monitor, adapt, and grow our programs across Canada
  • Support evaluation efforts, act on results, and develop resources and processes
  • Collaborate with all other teams at to ensure alignment of organizational priorities
  • Support efforts to collaborate in the mental health space, both nationally and internationally

What we’re looking for:

  • A great manager. We want someone with at least 3 years managing a team – someone who loves building relationships, coaching and providing feedback, and creating high-functioning teams.
  • Experience working with a non-profit in program management and design. Ideally, you have knowledge of the mental health sector, experience working with youth and diverse communities across Canada, and an understanding of social justice.
  • Comfort with change and working in a fast-paced environment. We are growing rapidly and have a “try, learn, try again” approach. If you’re bored doing the same thing over and over again, and love being busy, this may be a good fit for you.
  • The ability to handle the minutia while keeping an eye on the bigger picture. One minute you’ll be helping a coordinator think through travel plans, and the next minute you’ll be scheduling a meeting with a travel agency to see if there’s a better way to do things. Or you might coach someone on how to manage a difficult relationship with a program participant, and then start thinking about if additional staff training or a clearer participant code of conduct might help mitigate future issues.
  • Data-driven analytical skills. We are proud of our strong focus on research and evaluation, and we want someone who is eager to support our assessment and data-collection efforts while being excited to put them to good use.
  • A visionary approach. We want to be bigger, better, and more impactful, and we need someone who is excited for the growth ahead of us and eager to contribute in a meaningful way to’s evolution.

We would love it if you had:

  • Learning Management System (LMS) and/or Customer Relationship Management (CMR) experience
  • Teaching and/or curriculum design experience
  • Knowledge of and experience in advocacy work and evaluation
  • Experience leading program outreach efforts
  • Proficiency in French

What’s in it for you?

  • A full-time, permanent position; $50-70,000 per annum, depending upon previous experience
  • A comprehensive benefits package, including $2,000 annual coverage for mental health services, accessible from the first day on the job
  • Working for an organization that supports professional development and that will invest time and money into your growth
  • A flexible, trust-based culture: we offer unlimited sick days, flex hours, and remote work opportunities
  • A fun, exciting environment filled with an amazing group of driven, talented people (check us out)
  • In addition to vacation allowances, we offer a winter and summer office closure so that we can all recharge simultaneously
  • A chance to shape the growth of an aspirational, well-funded organization and make a significant impact on the mental health and well-being of young people across Canada
