My name is Melina Planes and I am from the T'Sou-ke Nation. I am a third year practicum student as well, from the University of Victoria, working alongside Tabita, Bonnie and Becky. I will be running a dance camp starting February 6th from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm.
I look forward to meeting everyone in the community!

Erinn Doncaster

Hello! My name is Erinn Doncaster, and I am so grateful for the warm welcome I have received from staff and community members alike. I am a third year social work student from the University of Victoria, and will be here until April working with Tabita, Bonnie and Becky. You will probably see me at the Mom’s group, Meal Bag program, GAL’s group, and the Gathering Strength camps – I look forward to meeting you all! I will also be running two Drama Camps for youth, starting February 19th for ages 8-12 and February 21st for ages 13-18.

My background is diverse – I have lived on both the East and West coasts, and have worked as a doula, farmer and careworker, and have studied drama and education. In the future, I hope to weave all of these experiences together as a social worker, working with families and communities to build strength and resilience. I am so grateful and excited for this opportunity to work and learn with you!
