Volunteer of the Year

Andrea VanBlaricom Volunteer of the Year

Andrea VanBlaricom was a volunteer of Youth Diversion back in the late 90's. She participated in Rebound and supported the SNAP classroom. She was attending her first year of University in Toronto when she took her life. Following her death, her parents donated to Youth Diversion and they continued to donate annually in Andrea's name. To honour her time as one of our dedicated volunteers and Andrea's memory we choose to name this award after her. Every year our staff determines a suitable candidate for this award.
