A Drive for Change: Niagara Impact Youth Award Recipient Supports BIAFEs Initiatives



In 2022, Katie-Ann Wolfenberg was awarded the Niagara Impact Youth Award. An award that recognizes community members who have made a positive impact on life in Niagara and to drive a positive change. As Katie-Ann truly defines what it is to be a Youth Ambassador - she ignites a wave of enthusiasm, drawing in the attention of local dignitaries and residents alike to rally behind causes close to her heart its no wonder she walked away the recipient of the award.


Last December, on behalf of the Brain Injury Association of Fort Erie, Katie-Ann took the stage at City Hall with a compelling presentation, rallying support for the Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) event. Her presentation resonated deeply with the dignitaries present, who ultimately pledged their support.


But Katie-Ann's involvement transcends mere advocacy; she is a hands-on force for change. Her presence at community events is impactful. From assisting with actively engaging in various initiatives like our fall dinners to leading outreach, writing letters to support BIAFE, she embodies the spirit of community engagement and service.


As Fort Erie continues to evolve and grow, let us draw inspiration from Katie-Ann's unwavering dedication to building a brighter future for all who call this community home.


What does it mean to be a Youth Ambassador?


To be a youth ambassador means to play a crucial role in empowering and engaging young people within the community. By actively involving them in various aspects of community affairs, youth ambassadors inspire a sense of ownership and belonging, fostering leadership skills and a commitment to improving their town. Serving as role models, they inspire their peers to take initiative and contribute positively to society. This investment in youth ambassadors not only cultivates future leaders but also ensures the sustainability and resilience of the community for generations to come.
