Janae Ulrich, child and youth care counsellor  graduate

Giving kids a safe place to be kids is everything to Janae Ulrich.

As the general manager of the Redcliff Youth Centre, the child and youth care counsellor (CCYC) graduate now sees a different side to her town. Raised in a large, tight-knit family, Ulrich completed her schooling in Redcliff and attended Medicine Hat College so she could stay close to home. During her time in the CCYC program, she worked at the youth centre as a practicum student and quickly learned that not all childhood experiences were like her own.
