Katherine Merrell-Anderson is the new youth programs coordinator at 4 Wing MFRC.

Merrell-Anderson has worked with MFRC for a year and a half as a youth monitor, and during her practicum for her social work diploma from Portage College.

She will be responsible for weekly programming and special events at the 4 Wing Youth Centre, and several annual events. “I’m currently
working on the Family Day programming, which will include a dance and a Star Wars-themed Family Day event,” she said.

She will coordinate MFRC’s Youth Conference in May, Theatre Camp in August and Girls’ Empowerment Camp in September. As MFRC’s youth programs coordinator, Merrell-Anderson also oversees home delivery of The Courier and four to six babysitting courses each year.

She said she would like to build on the success of the existing programs and hopes to add more.
