Serving the Ottawa community since 1995, Crossroads Children’s Mental Health Centre believes that children with emotional, social or behavioural challenges lack the skill and not the will to behave. Crossroads is currently looking for a volunteer Director with a diverse blend of capacities, expertise, community connections and perspectives to join its Board. Diversity on our Board helps to support Crossroads’ mandate to treat children up to age 12 and their families.

Our Board follows a policy governance model that allows us to fulfill our obligation of accountability to our community without being involved in the day-to-day operations of this highly regarded centre. As a team we focus on larger issues. We set and maintain a framework of delegation and internal control that ensures compliance with Crossroads’ commitment to quality service. This includes looking at how best to serve Ottawa’s diverse population.

In addition, experience in one or more of the following areas will be considered an asset:

  • Provincial Government Relations
  • Transcultural Mental Health issues
  • Information Technology (IT)
  • Advocacy
  • Governance
  • Early Childhood Education/ Daycare- related services

Interested candidates are invited to submit their resumé to the attention of Anne Chiarelli, Chair, Board Development Team, at Selected candidates will be contacted and interviewed at a later date.
