Rose Fontaine

Nominated by: Robyn Bauer

Hi, my name is Rose Fontaine
I am 24 years old. I am from Sagkeeng First Nation.

I have been volunteering and working with Bearclan for 4 years.
During this time, I was honored to have joined Bearclan initially as a volunteer. I volunteered for the Patrols as well as the food program.
I then worked with Bearclan full time as the youth patrol coordinator and Northend patrol coordinator.
I am currently working at The Link Youth and Family Support as a youth support worker.
This position has helped me learn and connect with my culture so that I can pass the knowledge down to others and the youth I work with.
I have continued staying connected with The Bearclan patrol.
I am grateful for my experience at Bearclan as it has helped shape me into the person I am today.
I would be honored to serve the community as a board member and bring a youth perspective to the table.
