Commitment to Equity
Equity Caldera recently participated in a year-long equity training project. At Caldera we recognize a historic and persistent opportunity/achievement-gap between white youth and youth of color. Closing that gap while increasing opportunities for all young people is a top priority of our organization. Race must cease to be a reliable predictor of a person’s achievement and success. In order to achieve this goal we are committed to creating and fostering racial diversity at every level of the organization including but not limited to staff, youth, and leadership. With our hiring, our goal is a pool of highly qualified candidates who reflect the diversity of the youth community we serve.
Caldera, a creative youth development organization serving Oregon youth from both urban and rural communities, is seeking a part-time Arts Center Maintenance Associate to support maintenance of our Arts Center based in Central Oregon near Sisters. Our Arts Center includes 20 buildings and is located in the Cascade Mountain Range on the shore of Blue Lake on 116 acres surrounded by the Deschutes National Forest. The Arts Center Maintenance Associate will complete regular facility maintenance and repair; work with Caldera staff to plan for and track/document for building and landscape needs and processes; work with the Arts Center Programs Manager and other leaders to identify, potentially plan and manage larger facilities-and landscape-related projects (major repairs, remodels, new construction, etc.); and attend/participate in monthly staff meetings and occasional organizational events and meetings.
