“I recognize and value the potential that all individuals hold to live their lives in a manner that is meaningful to them.”

Dustin has been running the Transitioning to Independence Program (TIP) at Watari for more than 10 years. Dustin’s belief in the value and potential that all individuals hold guides his work in TIP, as he supports youth and young adults with moving forward with vocational aspirations, educational interests, finding and maintaining housing, integrating into their community, and building positive interpersonal connections. Dustin has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and is currently working towards a Master of Counselling Degree. When he is not busy with TIP and school work, he may be found travelling, learning languages, or baking shortbread cookies.
