Peters, Colleen

Colleen Peters - Good Citizen Award 2015Colleen was the driving force behind the development and implementation of the Thunder Bay Youth Strategy which tackles such issues as housing, employment, racism and the environment. Colleen is currently President of Thunder Bay Youth Centre and has donated hundreds of hours to the development of an incorporated board and to fundraising for the Centre. Colleen sat as a member of the City of Thunder Bay’s Youth Services Advisory Committee, assisting through surveys and social media to get feedback on the needs of youth in our community. Her perspective on the importance of positive experiences for youth was invaluable as the committee developed its Youth Services Plan. This Plan is now a guiding document for the City of Thunder Bay in the delivery of programs and services for local youth.
