Kaitlyn believes that communities are stronger and more resilient when youth are empowered to take on leadership roles and their voices included in the conversation. In September, Kaitlyn will begin a Master’s in Marine Management where her research will focus on youth engagement in community based conservation. At Heartwood, Kaitlyn is part of the Youth Action Team as an Assistant Facilitator. She’ll be supporting a number of programs throughout the summer and is excited to be a part of the team!
