Hope is our new Post-Secondary Program Coordinator! She has a dynamic background working for various charity organizations as a Youth Leader, Shelter Worker, and Success Coach. Her heart to help youth and young adults identify and overcome barriers to reach their goals and dreams is evident. We are confident that our young people will thrive under Hope’s leadership!
“I am very excited to join the amazing and loving community of Inner Hope as Post-Secondary Coordinator. I have been so impressed by the community that Inner Hope has created in East Vancouver and I can’t wait to wholeheartedly serve alongside the staff, volunteers, and youth. My heart is to walk alongside people in their journey of life, helping empower youth with skills for education and employment as well as identify their passions and help them live those passions out. I look forward to building relationships and providing a space for them to feel safe and supported in their goals for life.”
Hope hit the ground running as our Post-Secondary Coordinator just in time to lead the program through a full evaluation based on World Vision’s LEAP model (Learning through Evaluation with Accountability and Planning). This involved interviewing 13 participants, staff and volunteers to collect stories of significant change that occurred in the lives of participants because of the post-secondary program. Hope found this experience helpful in developing relationships with the participants and gaining insights into how the program could be strengthened. Hope is well on her way to developing strong relationships with our young adults and we look forward to more stories of transformation.
