Feb 21 2019 – Youth Focused

This week we had a very Youth inspired meeting. Present at the table was our newest ‘local’ in Whistler and a previous youth exchange student Sarah, Anne Dalmolin (2018/19 inbound student from Brazil), Kate Risso (2019/20 outbound student from Whistler being sponsored by the New Westminster Club) and Gavin Riley, our own 2019/20 outbound student.   
Big thanks to Jens for stepping in and chairing the meeting in my absence. I’m still away but was super excited to dial in and listen to our very important guest speaker today.
Gavin Riley told us about his family in Whistler, his passion for basketball and his ‘over the moon-ness’ for his acceptance into the youth exchange programme and his new home country being Germany. We wish you all the success and best life experiences Gavin! Look forward to seeing you a little more before you head away.
