WHO WE ARE!
We are a new initiative in Grande Prairie that is supported by the Tamarack Institute and the Government of Canada to connect with youth to help break down some of the systemic barriers that are preventing them from graduating.
My name is Jackie (she/her). I have a BA in Physical Education from the University of Alberta as well as an MA in Sport and Recreation Studies from the University of New Brunswick. I also hold a diploma in University Teaching, and I am a Certified Coach Practitioner (Life Coach).
Hi hello! My name is Tahnia (she/her)! I recently obtained my Bachelor of Arts in theatre from the University of Lethbridge. I also hold a Visual Arts diploma and have a hefty background in graphic design, marketing and dinosaurs! The dinosaur thing is mostly a very passionate hobby and love of mine.
Would you like to connect with use for roundtables, initiatives or feedback? We would love to hear from you! You can contact Tahnia directly at with questions - or fill out the form here!
Communities Building Youth Futures: Grande Prairie was founded in 2020 with the mission of creating youth driven initiatives to help combat systemic barriers that are preventing our youth from graduating and pursing post secondary education, trades training or entering into the work force.
