Laura Klassen

Coordinator, Creative Life Program

Laura knows everyone will say that their program in their city is the one of the best, but she actually believes that Creative Life is one of the most niche and highly skilled art programs for youth in BC! She has seen so many professional artists get behind the vision to help put on such brilliant workshops that are tailored for tangible outcomes.

“We’ve worked extremely hard to create an environment that anyone with whatever labelled barrier can achieve something worthwhile in 2 hours.”

In this well-rounded job with YU’s Creative Life, Laura gets to see all sides of the program, which can make her pretty frustrated some days and grinning from ear-to-ear other times. But for Laura, it is well worth it all.

“Youth Unlimited allows Creative Life to thrive within a framework of other [wonderful] faith-based entrepreneurs who love youth and their communities. We are so bonkers that we fundraise for everything and get to partner with people while we do it”.
