Leshona Lennard - Volunteer Youth Worker
Hey everyone! My name is Leshona and I am the Volunteer Youth Worker for Neighbourlink this summer. I’ve recently graduated from McMaster University with my Bachelor of Science. Throughout my undergrad, I developed a love for community outreach, and creating programming for youth (Bible studies are my personal favourite). I felt God calling me to pursue this path and I will be starting my community development program in the fall. I’m excited to see where God takes me next, and am very glad He has placed me here at Neighbourlink for these next few months. I’m looking forward to working with the team and the youth, and I can’t wait to see how God will use us bless this community!
