Child and Youth Support
Abbi arrived at Nova's Ark in May of 2021 to complete her placement for her Child and Youth Care degree from Toronto Metropolitan University. Following that, she took on the role of a Summer Mentor for two years and now, is happy to be joining the support team full-time as a Child and Youth Care worker. As a Child and Youth Care Worker, her role is to offer support and resources through one-on-one programming, aimed at helping children and youth attain their personal objectives. Abbi's approach to programming centers around utilizing a strength-based approach by building on her guests' strengths to aid them in achieving their goals. She was drawn back to Nova's Ark each summer by its unique and inclusive environment, where the dedicated team works hard to meet every guest's needs. The programming is one-of-a-kind and is something she wanted to be a part of to become a better child and youth care worker.
