Graduates giving back!

Nancy in the classroom
Nancy in the classroom

Nancy is one of several successful graduates of our program who are now giving back through volunteering at the Centre. Nancy came to the CYEC when she was 13, after losing her mother at 8 and spending several years with her grandmother. After excelling at elementary school, she attended a boarding school for high school, then completed a diploma in hospitality management.  

Nancy is working with the children at the Centre to help them take on more responsibilities and learn life skills. She’s organized them in mixed-age groups, with the older students taking leadership roles and guiding the younger ones. She’s helping them learn problem solving skills and conflict resolution, along with basic tasks such as serving meals and cleaning up after.  

Gratitude for the people at the Centre and those who support their work motivates Nancy. ‘I am very grateful to the CYEC. It’s like a family to me. They’ve given me advice and have been very supportive. I don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t come here. I’ve benefited from the support of others, so I want to give back and make things better.’ 

You support enables Nancy to do her work and creates opportunities for more young people. Thanks for all you do!
