2010 Leadership Award - Toronto

Native Child and Family Services

Nominator Comments:

Theola’s work and leadership go beyond her role as Outreach Worker at Native Child and Family Services. She not only inspires Aboriginal youth to take charge of their lives and overcome barriers such as poverty, addiction and family violence, but trains the youth to assume outreach roles themselves in order to foster empowerment within each youth she works with. Theola also places great emphasis on connecting and building rapport with other agencies in order build unity among the sector.
