Mina Dickinson

Board of Directors, Mona Foundation, Canada

Mina is the coordinator of the Family Development Program at Sea to Sky Community Services in Squamish. She has worked as a front-line Family Support Worker and Family Preservation Counselor and now coordinates these programs as well as the Youth Outreach Program. She has volunteered in many different capacities in her community for the past 27 years. Mina says, “What attracted me to Mona Foundation is their approach that communities have the knowledge about how they can help and support each other and improve their own lives. In my experience this is the most effective approach to help families or communities.”

Sustainable development is a process of building capacity at the grassroots where local people own their own development
