Job Posting

Co-Facilitator, Transgender Peer Support Group (Cambridge) x2

Part-time, Contract

SPECTRUM, Waterloo Region’s Rainbow Community Space

Posting Date: June 1, 2021

Closing Date: June 20, 2021

Thanks to a grant from the Cambridge and North Dumfries Community Foundation, SPECTRUM is able to fund two co-facilitators to run a Transgender Peer Support Group specifically for Cambridge. This will be a pilot project for one year with the goal of developing this into an ongoing service. These two positions will not be employees but will be paid stipends:

$25/hour, two hours bi-weekly, 26 weeks

Pay will be by cheque, once per month on the 15th

Our new co-facilitators will shadow our existing Transgender Peer Support Group facilitators for two meetings in July before beginning the new group. Our Transgender Services Coordinator will oversee this project. The new Cambridge group will begin in late July.

Reporting to our Acting Executive Director and our Transgender Services Coordinator, the two co-facilitators will work together to facilitate a two-hour group every second week. Initially, this will take place virtually using Zoom. When it is safe to do so, we will move to an in-person location in Cambridge. This group will be a resource for anyone age 18+ that identifies within the transgender variant umbrella, including but not limited to: transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, gender fluid, non-binary, genderless, agender, non-gendered, third gender, two-spirit, bigender, transman, transwoman, neutrois, questioning and beyond.


  • Must be 25 years of age or older
  • Must be able to commit to working the same evening every two weeks (proposed Tuesdays and Fridays to integrate better with our existing offerings)
  • Must have access to reliable high-speed internet and a private place to work from
  • Must have access to reliable transportation within Cambridge
  • Must identify as transgender or non-binary
  • Preference will be given to applicants who live in Cambridge or North Dumfries
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Experience facilitating groups
