Full-Time Club Support Manager | Gestionnaire, soutien aux Clubs – Posted by Anywhere

Job Description

BGC Canada is seeking a Club Support Manager, Quebec or Eastern Ontario-based who is bilingual in English and French, to initiate and provide consultation and support services to member Clubs. Reporting to the Director, Central Region & Operational Excellence, this role works in partnership with local Clubs to build and grow their capacity to have the greatest impact on children, youth, and families; and works in collaboration with other members of the national team to assist Clubs with achieving operational excellence.

About BGC Canada (formerly Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada)

Community-based services. Positive relationships. Life-changing programs. As Canada’s largest child- and youth-serving charitable organization, BGC Canada provides vital programs and services to over 200,000 young people in 775 communities across Canada.

We provide safe, supportive places where all kids and teens, of all backgrounds, can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, and develop confidence and skills for life. From anti-racism to Reconciliation to LGBTQ2S+, food security to scholarships to job readiness, our Clubs battle systemic issues with systemic solutions—equity, acceptance, support, and opportunity.

And it works. 69% of alumni say a Club saved their life. We help increase academic performance and decrease risky behaviours. The kids and teens we serve tell us that we’ve helped them feel more confident, get along better with others, and make better choices for themselves.

Opportunity Changes Everything is our rallying cry and the foundation of BGC Canada’s recent rebranding. It embodies our goals:

  • To become known as Canada’s leading champion of children and youth
  • To provide more children and youth with a third place between the realities of home life and the pressures of school
  • To nurture Canada’s next generation

If a young person needs it, BGC Clubs provide it.
