Youthful Leadership

As volunteer Co-Chair of the Youth Committee, Johnson Li leads by example. A bright young man, he has decided to make a difference in his community by helping others to lead. Currently, he is working with members of the Board and others on the Youth Committee to create programs that help youth build leadership and career skills.

A few years ago, Johnson decided to improve his lifestyle and started to go to the Kerrisdale Community Centre gym to better his physical health. “That was one of the best decisions of my life,” he said. “And I want to pay it forward. I want to help other young people improve and get what they want to make their lives better.”

Johnson added: “This is an inclusive place and I think that is what many people – youth, seniors and families – feel when they walk through the door. It offers something for everyone in the way of programs – but it is the culture that makes this community centre special. We all belong here.”

What Johnson Wants the Park Board to Know
