Youth Recreation Coordinator
It is with some sadness that we announce the departure of our Youth Recreation Coordinator, Marion Conway. Marion has accepted a position with the YWCA in Prince Albert and will be working as one of their SWIS workers. Marion's last day was on August 28. We would like to thank Marion for her dedication and hard work and wish her the best of luck in her new position!
The Youth Recreation Coordinator position is responsible for the design and delivery of a variety of youth leadership training and after school time period initiatives. This included Take the Lead, High Five, and Play Leadership workshops among many others. The "Active Children, Active Youth" (ACAY) initiative was very successful and provided training to over 300 youth and adult leaders from a variety of communities over this past year. The LDSCR will be reviewing this initiative over the next few weeks to determine what course of action we will be taking and how the Youth Leadership training opportunities would be best delivered.
If your community or school is interested in receiving this training or if you would like additional information, please do not hesitate to call one of our staff.
