Natasha has been working with James Bay Community Project since 2021. She has worked with children and youth for the past 14 years and has worked in various roles in Montreal, Toronto and Victoria. Natasha uses tools from trauma-informed practice training, creative arts-based facilitation, and body/self-awareness in our nature, with nature. It is Natasha’s intention to support youth in exploring their voice, to find comfort and acceptance in who they are, and to work in creating positive change within their communities. Natasha recognizes the intersectionality of youth work, social work and social justice; she weaves these threads through Outreach and group facilitation while continuing with her own personal learnings. Natasha provides 1:1 outreach services with children, youth and families, and facilitates a social skills group, Cool Cues, for ages 8 – 13. Natasha is also the cook behind JBCP’s Family Dinner Program, offering a free weekly meal to families within the community.
When not at work, Natasha loves to climb – trees, rocks and whatever else she can find. She loves playing games, being in the forest and hanging with her pup.
