Work for Zero Ceiling

Zero Ceiling is committed to ending youth homelessness by providing young adults with unconditional support, advocacy, and opportunities. We create a safe, empowering, inclusive environment so they can become self-determining adults. We are working towards equity and justice for young adults who have been marginalized, including Indigenous, 2SLGBTQ+, and racialized young people.

We enthusiastically welcome applications from all qualified people, including those with lived experience, racialized people, people of all sexual orientations, women and trans* people, Indigenous peoples, those with diverse abilities, mental illness, and from all social strata.
