Peer Mediation And Skills Training (PMAST) is seeking energetic individuals for our organization’s Board of Directors. We are looking for new recruits, new ideas, new blood, new energy. Candidates with experience and/or knowledge in the areas of marketing, fundraising, grant writing, social media and governance would be especially beneficial but not necessary.
PMAST is a Calgary based, not-for-profit organization, dedicated to providing schools and communities with skills to successfully deal with conflict, violence, discrimination and bullying, while building confidence, safety, and self-esteem. We empower youth to analyze conflict, investigate underlying issues and key concerns, and apply strategies to help build effective solutions. We need to provide our youth with the skills and the confidence to make better choices.
Experience is requested but mainly we are looking for people with energy and passion in dealing with youth. Speciffic areas needed are in grant writing, fund raising, media and publicity.
Did you know the Canadian Governments spend about $10,700,000 PER DAY incarcerating offenders; excluding societal costs, court costs, police, probation, legal services, victims’ losses, rehab programs, property damage, etc. How many adult offenders were juvenile offenders? Is it safe to say - most were? What drives youth to this behaviour? What if we could reach these youth before they go down this path? PMAST believes we need a pro-active approach to deal with the issues youth are facing.
