Tracey Mitchell, West Kootenay Youth Climate Corps Alumni Interview
Youth Climate Corps has been operating since 2020 and now has over 50 alumni who have completed the program with us. Youth Climate Corps is proud to share the stories of alumni after their passage through the program, underlining their creativity, engagement and awesome project within the field of climate they continue working on.
Youth Climate Corps crew member Tracey Mitchell recently shared how her time spent on Youth Climate Corps helped guide her to where she is today. Tracey is presently working as an employee with Living Lakes Canada, a water stewardship NGO based in the Columbia Basin that focuses on the protection of freshwater.
The organization has brought Tracey on as a communications assistant. As explained in her interview with WildSight, her role permits her to express her creativity and do various types of tasks.
“My time in the YCC empowered me to think more about how I can act to serve the environment around me. Before working with YCC, I likely would have thought a position with Living Lakes Canada would be beyond my capacity, but everyone I’ve met through the YCC and now in Living Lakes Canada has been so encouraging.”
