Ms Kim as Program Director
I'm am the founder and director of Powerfilled Youth TO. I work full-time for The City of Toronto's Safe City Program, however my passion lies in uplifting children, youth and vulnerable individuals. Many young people today face various types of challenges, which can create conscious and subconscious barriers for them. I've developed this program to create a fun, safe space for youth to positively and freely engage, learn, grow, flourish and contribute to their community. Studies have shown that Arts education improves a children’s confidence and through participating in art activities with peers,young people build self-esteem, self-governance and self-respect skills. In addition, our weekly workshops allow these young people to explore various character development themes through meaningful, insightful discussion. My hope is to impact these youth through encouragement and empower them to fearlessly pursue hopes, dreams and aspiration regardless of social economic class, age, gender and race.
