Our mission is to give youth the tools they need to develop healthy relationships. TREE programs are the initial drop in a life-long ripple effect of self-awareness, healthy conflict resolution, and empathy. The social-emotional skills youth build in our workshops grow to transform their classrooms, friendships, families, and future as citizens and leaders. Since 2016, TREE has supported youth by equipping them with conflict resolution tools that allow them to support their classmates with empathy and problem-solve respectfully.
In addition to working with students, TREE supports teachers and families with resources and trainings to equip them with the tools to foster social-emotional learning in their classroom and at home. Our fun curriculum-integrated programs invite youth to practice the skills they’re learning with our experienced facilitation team, allowing classrooms and community groups to create a culture of belonging, understanding and respect.
Our small, entrepreneurial team highly values reflective facilitation practice and sharing constructive feedback; praise and challenges. We love talking about what is working and what’s not, and iterating to ensure all of our programs and processes thrive. Our office is located in the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement where we work amongst leaders in peace innovation, and learn alongside them in weekly community gatherings.
The primary role of the Manager of Programs is to oversee TREE program development and delivery, and will divide time between facilitation, training and supervision, and administration. This position reports to and works closely with the Executive Director, in program development and delivery, evaluation, and identifying new opportunities for programming. This position oversees and works closely with the Facilitation Team to deliver high quality content and consistency in all program areas. The promotion of TREE programs within Waterloo Region and beyond is part of this role.
