Kaylee Desjarlais

Title: Program Facilitator

My name is Kaylee Desjarlais and I’m from Elizabeth Métis Settlement. I’ve lived here my whole life so getting the opportunity to work with my community to try to make a positive difference for the youth is amazing. Growing up I never thought I would become a role model for the youth but as I think about it now it gives me joy that I could somehow impact some of the youth with the teaching and knowledge that I received during the program facilitator training. When I became a facilitator for the first time in the summer of 2019 I was nervous and excited. It was such a great experience that I knew I wanted to join the team again for future summer camps. During that summer I felt like I came out of my shell more because it gave me the opportunity to teach the youth about the modules that we as facilitators learnt during training.
