Public Call for Board Members

Stepping Stone is seeking energetic and passionate individuals from a diverse variety of backgrounds to work on a common goal: the safety, health and well being of former and current sex workers.

We are a user-directed not for profit organization that provides supportive programming and services to former and current sex workers throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality.

We embrace the philosophy that all individuals have the right to self determination; that sex trade workers are entitled to the basic right to safety and access to services regardless of their occupation; and that sex trade workers are entitled to social and economic alternatives to the sex trade.

Stepping Stone offers a range of services and programs including street outreach, drop in centre, crisis counseling, peer support, harm reduction workshops, recreational and educational programs, advocacy, court support and the in house visits of health practitioners.

Board Members bring a diversity of talent, experience, and skills to the table. The active involvement and participation of Board Directors is a vital and necessary component of the Association. In addition to committee work, Board Members commit to attending monthly meetings, held monthly. The monthly commitment for a Board Member can vary, but on an average is between 5-8 hours a month.

Interested persons should submit for consideration a cover letter, describing why they would like to join our team and a copy of their resume.

Applications must be submitted by May 17, 2010 to:

The Stepping Stone Association

Attn: Nominating Committee

c/o Rene Ross, Executive Director
