We would like to give a big warm welcome to the NWTRPA’s new Director, Active Communities, Nuka de Jocas!
Nuka’s academic background in Outdoor Development and Social Intervention, and professional experience will make for a great addition to the team. His past work has been rooted in community capacity development in different regions of Canada.
In Yellowknife, he worked for the NWT Francophone Federation as the Youth Territorial Coordinator, creating programs for French youth. He organized delegations for numerous territorial, interprovincial and national events, notably the 2014 Canadian Francophone Games.
On Vancouver Island, he worked as the Community Capacity Coordinator for the village of Sayward, organizing activities focused on physical literacy, for children and seniors alike.
And in Montreal, he held the position of Community Development Agent for the Montreal-North Table de quartier, coordinating the social development plan which aims to reduce poverty and social exclusion.
Nuka is thrilled to be back in the Northwest Territories and appreciates the opportunity to work with the NWTRPA. You can reach Nuka at firstname.lastname@example.org or (867)669-8375. Visit our Staff/Board page to meet the rest of the NWTRPA Staff and Board Members.
