We are hiring! Indoor Worker Group Facilitator

Peers Victoria is an innovative, multi-service grassroots agency that has been working with, and for, Victoria sex workers since 1995. Through direct services delivery and partnerships, Peers provides an evolving array of outreach, harm reduction, and support services. We maintain a welcoming and accessible service environment that promotes empowerment of current and former sex workers. 

Peers’ Indoor Workers Group is a monthly peer-based socio educational group for sex workers in independent, massage parlors, and agency-based indoor environments.  This group aims to build community with working individuals who do not already access Peers’ internal programming to share safety, advocacy concerns and solutions and information and resources relevant to current indoor sex work.  Each month the group meets for dinner, STBBI testing, and a chosen guest speaker(s) attends to provide information and answer questions (for example: bondage experts, boudoir photoshoots, assistance with ads, workshops on boundaries, etc.). 

We are currently aiming to expand our membership to indoor workers who belong to marginalized and racialized populations to ensure we are reaching and serving all indoor sex workers in Victoria BC. We are looking for someone interested in helping us recruit and connect with these community members.  

Reporting to the Executive Director, the Indoor Workers Group Facilitators work in teams of two and are skilled in harm reduction perspectives, group facilitation, workshop delivery, knowledge of community resources, and providing general support. The Indoor Workers Group Facilitator must work collaboratively with the other facilitator to deliver a continuum of ethical, peer- based, responsive supports informed by our service recipients’ perspectives and preferences. Mentorship from a current facilitator will be provided for the successful candidate.
