Maureen Floris

Youth Worker

There’s something about being with youth that makes Maureen come alive; in her words, “My energy level increases just being in the presence of anyone under the age of 25.” This woman gives her energy and time to youth in a variety of capacities at Youth Unlimited including breakfast and lunch clubs, leadership development, and serving at the after-school coffee house.

There is lots about youth that Maureen appreciates! “I love how youth are teachable. Sometimes it takes a bit to break through the layers, but I believe deep down, they are wanting to learn and become confident, contributing individuals. My favourite part is when I see this happening and they recognize it is true!”

Before Youth Unlimited, Maureen was organizing fundraisers, doing administrative work and was the owner of three different businesses! She currently lives on an acreage with one husband, three kids, 99 chickens, and a dog.

Life is never dull in the Floris family!
