Meet Robyn, our Lead Youth Coordinator. She’s one of the first people you’ll meet when you come to one of our Pop-up Activities!
"Some cultures and some people in the community like to reject seeking out help because it may deem them weak or different — which is totally not the case whatsoever. And that’s something I want to make my goal, to take away the stigma from seeking out help, and just change the dynamic to make it more acceptable.
I work at Bridges to the Future because I love that it’s a new and innovative model that it includes youth in the planning process, and it’s completely youth-friendly and youth-driven.
What inspires me the most to work at Bridges to the Future is to continuously see all the the youth reach their goals, whether it’s youth getting their jobs for the first time and getting that first paycheck, or seeing them walk across the stage and thinking that they would never be able to get that diploma, and seeing that smile on their faces as well as their families’ faces. That’s what makes me come back each and every day.”
