We congratulate Matt Dunae as he begins his new employment with Inter Tribal Health Authority. Matt's last day with the Vancouver Island Crisis Society was January 1, 2019. After working five years as a co-facilitator in our Youth and Community Education programs, he will surely continue to have a positive impact on youth in his new role. All the best, Matt!

All Vancouver Island Crisis Society School and Community Education Programs can be booked by contacting us via email.



Matt's Goodbye Message:

I am writing to let you know that I have resigned from my position as the Community Learning Engagement Coordinator at the Crisis Society after five amazing years and have taken a new position at the Inter Tribal Year Authority.

I have enjoyed speaking with and to students immensely in my time here at the Crisis Society. Their programs are world-class and have definitely changed lives, as evidenced by some of the students I have gotten to see really flourish throughout their high school experience.

I will miss coming into schools and seeing all of you on a regular basis but I am sure I will run into some of you at other events.

I will have some big changes and challenges ahead but I am looking forward to working again with youth in many First Nations communities across the Island.
