Event Coordinator

Are you passionate about the power of education to change the world?  Put that passion and your organizational skills to use with Education without Borders (EwB).  
Who  we are:
Education without Borders is a Canadian-based non-profit organization that provides educational opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk children through initiatives in South Africa and Canada including after-school support programs in Math, English, Science, school leadership and youth mentorship.
Our key fundraising event is the nationwide, virtual annual South African Film Festival (SAFF) held in November, which presents feature films, documentaries and shorts that explore the culture, history and politics of South Africa – films that inspire, inform, and entertain.  In 2022, SAFF celebrates its 12th anniversary. All proceeds from the Festival support EwB initiatives in South Africa and Canada.
EwB has the following volunteer opportunity available, working remotely from home, supporting both EwB and/or SAFF.  
Event Coordinator
EwB has successfully moved our annual South African Film Festival (SAFF) to a virtual format in 2020. Use your creativity to explore opportunities to safely re-introduce live events (opening /closing party, limited in-person showings) in both Vancouver and Toronto.  Working with the SAFF committee, you will assist in developing new events, coordinate event logistics, and liaise with our social media and volunteer coordinator.
You excel at organizing, have some experience in event management. An interest in the South African films and culture definitely an asset!
Expected time commitment: 6-8 hours a month, on a flexible ongoing basis with more activity in October/early November during the film festival.
