For Kayla, joining the staff team at GVYU has, in a sense, felt like coming home. Kayla first joined the Youth Unlimited families by graduating the Lifeteams program, and after volunteering with YU programs while completing university, she joined the team after completing her Bachelors of Social Work at UBC.
Kayla works as the Administrative Assistant for both Vancouver and Surrey, helping the teams work effectively and efficiently. Kayla’s passion for her job runs clear, as she says, “I am eager to see our staff freely and fully step into their gifts and calling without being bogged down by administrative details. It is at the intersection of efficient systems and fruitful relationships that I come alive!”
Kayla’s pastimes include cycling, skiing and cooking (aka eating). She’s also known to give any listening ear an oral history of social work theory, while also spending time pondering the emotional lives of animals – especially orcas.
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.Donate
