She manages all aspects of the Senior’s Programs, which enable seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Jill has been the Community Engagement Coordinator and YVC Program Director since May 2017. She has worked with Volunteer Terrace before as a summer student in 2016; as well as a number of other non-profits coordinating youth programs. Jill enjoys coordinating fun opportunities for volunteers and youth to explore and challenge the status quo. Through experiences and education, Jill believes in the power of holistic views of interconnectedness and interdependency. She strongly believes in our community moving together towards healthy lifestyles and using diversity as our biggest strength. Jill feels providing opportunities to feel appreciated, diversified, recognized, and developing autonomy as future community members are values she wants youth to experience to further themselves through transformative learning and reflection.
Jill is home-grown here in the Northwest; she comes from the Nisga’a Nation in Laxgalts’ap and raised in Terrace. She is a UNBC Graduate, attaining a Bachelor of Arts with a major in First Nations Studies.

Thomas is one of our Youth Volunteer Corps Team Leaders! He is a Grade 12 graduating student at Caledonia and heading to post-secondary after he’s done. He joined our team in our first year of programming and became incredibly active upon arrival! He is incredibly passionate about helping others and aspires for an inclusive, considerate community.
Hazel is Volunteer Terrace’s Summer Student for 2018; she will be one of the Youth Volunteer Corps Team Leads this summer! Hazel has just completed her first year at UNBC in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Women studies. She wanted to spend her summer doing something she believed was working towards a better place; Hazel feels Volunteer Terrace is a place that values people and wants to see the best for them.
Hazel’s family has been involved with the community for years; volunteering was something that her family always treated as a responsibility to those we share space with. Over the years, her attitude has evolved from a little girl who when bribed with timbits would volunteer for hours on end to a young woman who takes joy in her community. She can still be convinced to help with most things if timbits are on the line.
As Hazel has grown up in Terrace, her beliefs about this rainy little place have grown as well. She now is firm in her belief that building a stronger, more inclusive future for our city must in part come from those who will sustain it. Out of this has come Hazel’s desire to work with the Youth Volunteer Corps of TBC. She recognizes the members of YVC and herself as the ones who shape the future and loves to see other youths discover their thirst for a healthier city.
