Guy Bordeleau Outstanding Canadian Youth Alumni Award
Room to Grow Foundation would like to congratulate Founding Board Member Jennifer Jones on her recent acceptance of the Guy Bordeleau Outstanding Canadian Youth Alumni Award from Canada World Youth.
Jennifer participated in a Canada World Youth exchange in 1999 and 2000, spending four months in Quebec and four months in the West African nation of Benin. Embedded in local communities, she learned a lot about grassroots community development and gained her passion for living and working outside Canada.
The award will help Room to Grow’s work supporting children in distress and providing families in crisis with safe spaces to heal and grow strong again. We are delighted to congratulate Jennifer on this wonderful achievement.
