Do you think that HIV/AIDS is a crisis in Toronto’s Black communities and do you have a VISION for the future of HIV/AIDS programming in Toronto?

Would you like to LEAD the growth and development of an organization focused on supporting people living with, and at risk for, HIV/AIDS?

Are you interested in FUNDRAISING to address HIV/AIDS in our community?

If you do, Black CAP would like you to consider joining its Board of Directors.

The Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP) is Canada’s largest Black-specific AIDS service organization and has worked to respond to HIV and AIDS in Toronto’s African, Caribbean and Black communities since 1989. Our work is guided by our motto, ‘Because All Black People’s Lives Are Important’, which serves as a reminder of our commitment to the human rights of all Black people who are vulnerable to HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Black CAP’s mission is to reduce the spread of HIV infection within Toronto’s African, Caribbean and Black communities and enhance the quality of life of Black people living with, or affected by, HIV/AIDS

We provide services to heterosexual women and men; gay, lesbian, trans, bisexual, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) people; newcomers; youth; and others in every aspect of our work. Black CAP works to reduce the high rates of HIV in Toronto and supports people living with HIV through outreach, prevention, support and volunteer programming. At Black CAP we recognize the unique impact of anti-Black racism and the stigma associated with HIV and sexual orientation. We also acknowledge the importance of confidentiality and have strict policies in place to protect the privacy of our clients.

Black CAP is a responsive and sustainable organization led by an empowered Board. Our Board fosters an environment where leadership is mentored. Black CAP is recruiting four (4) new Board members who can support the development of the organization. Board members are also asked to commit to a three-year term and are required to attend monthly Board meetings and at least one additional meeting per month. Board members are also expected to support agency fundraising and promote our work.

We are seeking Board members who are engaged in Toronto’s African, Caribbean and Black communities. Black CAP’s Board is also highly committed to recruiting PHAs (people living with HIV/AIDS) to lead the development of the organization and we strongly encourage PHAs to consider this opportunity. This year we are also focused on ensuring that the Board is balanced in relation to gender, gender identity, HIV status and age. We are also seeking members with knowledge of the impact of HIV in Toronto’s Black communities and skills/knowledge related to marketing and communications.
