Mentor - Tuesdays and Saturdays
Alycia earned her advanced diploma in the Child and Youth Worker program at La Cité Collegiale. She is fully bilingual and has spent years working alongside children and at-risk youth in school and community settings. Alycia has always had a passion for nature, but ironically, her passion became clearer as she moved closer to the city's core, leading her to seek out nature even more. Alycia has been teaching in Earth Path's programs for the past 2 years and has completed our Earth Roots Apprenticeship program in naturalist skills, wilderness skills and mentoring. She loves asking questions, investigating mysteries, identifying bugs, harvesting wild edibles, and expanding her knowledge.
As a parent of one of Earth Path's junior naturalists, she has seen the many benefits that nature programs can inspire in a child and is a strong believer in nurturing the program's values in children. In her free time, Alycia also enjoys to unplug and be mindful in the wilderness, as well as pack up a picnic and explore nature with her son wherever the day brings them.
Alycia co-teaches in Earth Path's Tuesday and Saturday programs in Ottawa. She also assists with the Teen Apprenticeship overnights when the group is co-ed.
