Position: Board of Directors Members
Type: nonprofit board members (unpaid/volunteer)
Organization: Free Geek Vancouver
Location: East Vancouver, British Columbia

Free Geek Vancouver is seeking At-Large Directors for its current mid-term Board, which lasts until September 2018.

We are currently in the process of reinventing and reorganizing, and are looking for able persons to assist us through these changes.

What Is Free Geek Vancouver?

We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce the environmental impact of electronic waste by diverting unwanted computers from landfills through recycling and reuse.

We accept donations by individuals and organizations, and aim to reuse as much as possible. Computers are rebuilt and tested by volunteers, and are donated to local non-profits and charities in need, or sold at affordable prices in our thrift store. Through this, we are able to ensure technology can get to those who need it.

What cannot be reused is sent to local recyclers who will process it in a way that is ethically and environmentally responsible.

You can find more information about us at

What Are We Looking For?

We are seeking skilled and educated individuals with a passion for activism and working for non-profits. Specifically, we are looking for Directors to assist with some or all of the following:

  1. Business development

  2. Marketing

  3. Grant writing

  4. Human resources

Directors are expected to put a minimum of 10 hours of work in each month, including one two-hour meeting on-site each month. Candidates must be willing to commit until mid-September 2018, at which point they may choose to stand for re-election.
