Esther Hoogland

Practicum Student

Esther moved from Alberta to Abbotsford in 2021 to attend Columbia Bible College, and is now in her third year. As part of her degree, she is doing her internship with Youth Unlimited Abbotsford.  With a huge heart for the youth in her community, Esther has been volunteering at YU since her first year of college, as well as working with the youth at her local church.

It’s safe to say Esther is dedicated to pouring love into youth. A typical week will look like being part of the Tuesday Truck Team, volunteering in the local high school, taking kids on after school adventures, and topping it all off with one on ones at the coffee shop. 

“Everything I do comes out of the desire to have redemptive relationships with people (both in and out of YU)”

When work is done, you’ll find her playing board games with friends and going to the theater with her husband.

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

Take Action

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.
