What is the Astonished Leadership Team?
Under the mentorship of the Astonished Program Coordinator, Astonished! contracts with a five-member team of vibrant young adults, with and without complex physical disAbilities, to plan and carry out inclusive, social, recreational, and cultural events for Astonished! Core Members and the wider community (Social Club Events).
Front Row: Kaitlyn Hoar, Kelsey Culbert. Back Row: Bobbi-Jo Schmitz (friend), Stephanie Ikekhuamen , Corrie VanBurgsteden, Courtney Bailey. The Astonished! Leadership Team plans and carries out monthly events with the Astonished! Core Members, volunteers, and friends.
Through the great work of the Astonished! Leadership Team, members have come to expect that each Social Club gathering will be a highly memorable and positive experience.
This is how the members of the leadership team responded when asked one thing they would like the A! community to know about them:
Kaitlyn– I like hanging out with friends and I love sports.
Kelsey – I like coming to events and planning them too. Come out and have some fun.
Stephanie – I am in in my third year of Health Studies at the University of Regina. I want to empower youth.
Corrie – I am a graduate from Kinesiology and Health Studies at the University of Regina. I work at the Cosmopolitan Learning Centre and in my spare time I like hanging out with the A! Leadership Team.
Courtney – In three months I will have three children under three. December is my due date for my twin girls.
