The managing director of the Summerland Asset Development Initiative has reduced her position from full-time to half-time as takes on another job.
“On behalf of the SADI board and the community I would like to thank Michelle Stefan and recognize her for the great work she has done as managing director for SADI,” said Anke Smit, chair of the SADI board. “We would also like to congratulate Michelle on her new job with the Canadian Red Cross. While Michelle’s new job will reduce her availability to SADI, we are very pleased that she has agreed to continue her employment with us on a part-time basis.”
Smit also thanked all who attended the recent forum on strengthening the bridges between youth and the community.
“As individuals, as a community and as an organization, the ideas shared on Oct. 25 will help to guide us as we continue to build assets in the young people of Summerland.
“Based on some of the great feedback we received at the forum, we plan to expand the activities offered to your youth by SADI, including additional opportunities for Summerland Secondary School students and more weekend activities for our youth. We will continue to invite student and community input as together we seek to support our youth.”
SADI is a non-profit charitable organization started in 1998 to provide activities, opportunities, support and resources for Summerland youth.
