Job description

Pacifica is a non-profit, in-patient and voluntary treatment centre for adults. Our participants are working towards creating new habits and living healthy and whole lives without the use of alcohol or drugs.
Currently at Pacifica, we host an amateur running club for our clients. We follow the Sun Run “Walk to 10k” training schedule up to three days a week. We are looking for someone who specializes in running and/or kinesiology to engage our clients during or before some of these runs. Ideally, the person will have knowledge about safe running techniques, pace, interval training and so on. Our clients are forming new habits and would greatly appreciate some information about how to best take care of their bodies during this time of transition.

Hours/time commitment

We are quite flexible with time and hours. Ideally, we would like to have someone come in once a month, or once every 6 weeks to provide information and training to our clients. As of right now, our running group happens on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4:15pm to 5:30pm. Anything during that time would be ideal but not absolutely necessary.

How to apply

Please email kayla@pacificatreatment.ca directly to express your interest.
