April 19, 2024

The Public Legal Information Association of NL is welcoming applications for a dynamic, motivated, and independent student to work with us this summer in the position of Youth Justice Camp Coordinator, based in our Labrador Office in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

The student in this position will be primarily responsible for organizing and facilitating several Youth Justice Camps in the province this summer in Happy Valley-Goose Bay and St. John’s.

The student will also be responsible for fundraising for the Youth Justice Camps, organizing guest speakers, recruiting volunteers to assist in the camp, preparing a mock trial exercise as part of the camp, promoting and advertising the camps, registering participants, and any other duties required to carry out the camps. We anticipate holding the Youth Justice Camps in late July and early August this year.

The student in this position will also be responsible for supporting work to carry out Public Legal Information’s services and projects in Labrador and in other parts of the province. These tasks may include, but may not be limited to: assisting in answering inquiries on the Legal Information Line and Lawyer Referral Service; researching, writing, and editing legal education publications and presentations; compiling statistics related to client services; assisting in the distribution of legal education materials; assisting in the facilitation of pro bono legal clinics; supporting the work of other Public Legal Information projects, including the Journey Project and Newcomers Legal Rights project; and other duties to be assigned by Public Legal Information’s Executive Director

This position is funded by the Canada Summer Jobs program. Based on the conditions of this program, the position is open to a student between the ages of 15-30 planning to return to post-secondary education in the fall.

Students with legal education or experience working in relation to the legal system are preferred, but legal education is not a requirement. Experience working with youth is also a preference.

Experience and familiarity with Indigenous communities and cultures, especially in Labrador, is considered an asset for this position.

All those interested in applying for this position are asked to submit a resume and cover letter to director@publiclegalinfo.com by 4 PM on Tuesday, April 30, 2024. Interviews will be conducted in early May either in person in Happy Valley-Goose Bay or online via Zoom.

The starting date for the position will be as soon as practicable, based on the student’s schedule. The duration of the position will be 12 weeks, based on 35 hours of work per week. The student will be compensated at a rate of $20/hour.

While the position will be based in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, at Public Legal Information’s Labrador Office, some travel within the province is expected.

Due to the anticipated number of applications, only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. To inquire further about this position, please call 709-722-4745 or email director@publiclegalinfo.com.
