Careers with Covenant House Vancouver

Covenant House is a premier provider of shelter and other services for homeless youth thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteers. It is through their efforts that we are able to help young people at risk establish a foothold on a new life.

I would recommend Covenant House as a workplace because of the environment and culture. Support and empathy are things we offer free of charge to our young people, as well as our co-workers. There is a real dedication to the continued education of our staff with both external and internal trainings and tools to help us continue to grow in our roles, which I personally value very much.
