There’s Hope in the Young People
Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Renee St-Jean, I am 24 years old, and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I am currently finishing my honours bachelor’s degree with a major in Psychology, a minor in Neuroscience, a concentration in Health Psychology, mental health and well-being. It has been a privilege to be an intern for KORI.

KORI was founded 18 years ago to create a haven for young people to flourish. We used youth work, the arts and travel as our main tools to create community and give support. Our doors were open to everyone but our focus was on supporting young people from African and Caribbean cultures.
