About Mighty Hawks
There are 800,000 people with a developmental disability in Canada alone. 50% of them are financially dependent and as low only 26% are employed. Most individuals with a developmental disability are eager to find meaningful employment but lack the resources to do so. Mighty Hawks is committed to working alongside people with developmental disabilities on their path to independence; supporting each individual’s personal, professional, and financial goals. We hold year-round weekly workshops covering a range of practical life and work relevant skills. We also offer paid work experience through our Work Readiness Program. We are providing opportunities to create a real impact in the lives of each individual and at Mighty Hawks we believe that a disability does not define the scope of one’s abilities.
About This Role
The Work Readiness Program is an innovative initiative allowing our participants to have an opportunity for temporary paid employment to build their resume and solidify their work skills. We would like to be able to partner with more like minded organizations to be able to offer as many jobs as possible. The VP of Partnerships will be responsible for contacting employers in the Kitchener-Waterloo Region to try and partner with them in that capacity. You must build and maintain strong relationships with them to ensure a positive connection between their organization and Mighty Hawks. As a part of the Mighty Hawks team you will be required to attend at least 1 of our weekly sessions and biweekly meetings.

- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Confident public speaker
