Serenity Renewal for Families (SRF) is seeking an Executive Director who is a solutions-focused, strategic leader who will serve as a spokesperson for the organization, and is responsible for promoting Serenity Renewal for Families to donors, volunteers, stakeholders, and the public at large. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director provides overall direction and leadership for the organization, and ensures that the programs and services offered by the organization contribute to the organization's mission and reflect its priorities.

This role is a non-salaried, part-time, volunteer position and will appeal to those who have completed their major career goals and are looking for an opportunity to give back to the community in a caring and meaningful way.

The ideal candidate is a self-motivated individual with broad-based executive leadership and management experience who possesses great interpersonal skills, is very passionate about helping others and has personal experience and affinity for addiction and mental health treatment.

Serenity Renewal for Families (SRF) has a 30 year track record delivering a package of integrated individual and group supports to parents and youth affected by addictions. SRF believes that chemical dependency is a disease that affects the emotional well-being and health of the family. Recovery requires that each person within the family takes responsibility for their own life. Relapse is reduced if all or part of the family participates in the recovery process and understands about the disease. Early treatment, education and peer support involving children and youth can break the cycle of addiction throughout family generations. For more information please visit www.serenityrenewal.ca.
