Spotlight On... Talia Ingram, Central Saanich Club Coordinator

Talia Ingram, Coordinator of our Central Saanich club, has been exceedingly busy these past few years. Through her hard work and dedication, we have seen the club nearly triple in reach in just three years. During the 2010/2011 school year, we had 58 children and youth accessing our programs, today we are happy to report that our programs serve over 170 kids! We truly have become “the” place to be after school for kids in the Brentwood Bay area.

And it’s not just the number of participants that has increased! We have doubled the number of programs that are offered. Where we used to offer three programs: After School Drop-In, Boys Only and Girls Only nights, and Youth Leadership, we now offer those in addition to our Bayside Teen Lounge, Eat-Around-The-World, Numeracy and Literacy, and Outdoor Adventure programs. The increase in our programming, and the success of the new programs is due to Talia’s ability to carefully listen to the needs of children, youth, and the community, and implement meaningful solutions to meet those needs.

Talia’s tenacity for building relationships has been key to the club’s success. Through her diligent work, youth have begun to take on Program Leader roles at the club. Strong partnerships have been developed and maintained with the Bayside Middle School, Panorama Recreation Centre, corporate partners like West Jet, municipal officials and local community groups. She also has a wonderful knack for engaging volunteers and practicum students in meaningful projects.

Of course all of these exciting new opportunities for youth come with a price-tag. We are thankful to the Municipality of Central Saanich, United Way, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada for their financial commitment to supporting youth!

It has been tremendously exciting to witness the growth of this club, and we are incredibly proud of the work that Talia is doing. We all know that it takes more than one person to do the amazing work that our Central Saanich club is doing, and the work of her staff is a testament to her leadership abilities. Thank you Talia, and your team, for all that you do!
