Darby Arens

Youth Worker - Creative Life

Darby is passionate about the transformational power of art and is excited to be a part of YU’s Creative Life Program, helping to provide youth with creative outlets in safe and encouraging environments.

With a fine art and graphic design background, Darby loves working with a variety of mediums and helping others to discover new ways of art making.

“That’s what I love about Creative Life, every week is a new adventure. Whether it’s painting and drawing, or fabric arts and soap making, there’s something for everyone. It’s amazing to see moments of bravery as the youth push past their comfort zones to try new things.”

When Darby isn’t running around Vancouver and working on creative projects, you can find her visiting her family and pet goats, Patsy and Tina, in Sorrento, BC.

Together we can transform the world our youth live in—but we can’t do it without you.

Every dollar makes a difference at YU. Thanks to low overhead and the maximization discounted and gifted vendor relationships, YU stretches each dollar to often double or triple its value.
