Connections Program Coordinator
My name is Khrystelle and I joined Christian Direction in 2018. I coordinate the programme Connections at the Innovation Youth Centre that caters to adolescents and young adults in the process of obtaining their high school diploma. While facilitating workshops on personal development during the school year, I help these students with their transition in life thus improving their future opportunities while trying to awaken their desire for community engagement.Since I started, I was able to join a coordination committee for the welfare of youth who live or come downtown and offer them activities and resources that meet their needs.
The staff at Christian Direction encouraged me not only to help vulnerable youth but to show them the love of Christ through our interventions and help we provide each day. Through this, I gain a greater understanding of the challenges they face and I can contribute to the transformation of the city.
