BYTE is super stoked to be hosting our annual Leaders In Training Conference again this year in March, and equally excited to announce our new LIT Coordinator, Alexie Merk! Alexie’s main gig is organizing conference logistics, coming up with incredible programming ideas, and inviting star youth from across Yukon and Northern BC to be involved! Born and raised in Elliot Lake, Ontario, Alexie has spent the last three years between Yukon and Ontario, teaching French at Porter Creek Secondary School during the school year and guiding canoe trips with ALIVE Outdoors during the summers. Alexie’s down with crafting, paddling, and spending time with friends, and is passionate about working with BYTE because she loves seeing youth become the change agents in their own lives.
If you’ve got questions regarding logistics and/or programming for March’s Leaders In Training Conference, Alexie’s your gal. Give her a shout at LIT@nullyukonyouth.com.
