Anna Burk: Communications & Social Media Coordinator
Anna Burk joined the Powerful Youth team in 2017 as a Senior Leadership Coach for our first ever Junior Global Leadership Academy. In 2019, while living in Portugal and teaching English, Anna returned to Powerful Youth as a Senior Leadership Coach for our first ever Global Leadership Academy in England. She loves the challenge of helping to deliver new programs! Since then, Anna has combined her background in communications and social media management with her passion for youth empowerment as our Communications & Social Media Coordinator. Anna graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Bachelor of Communications and a minor in Development & Sustainability. After taking part in a 4-month social entrepreneurship training program while studying abroad in the Netherlands, Anna developed a passion for social entrepreneurship that has endured to this day. She moved to India to work for a program teaching social entrepreneurship and leadership skills to college students, as well as to deliver workshops to rural college classes about the role of effective communication in community projects and entrepreneurship. An avid traveller having spent 1.5 years travelling the world, Anna loves to combine her passions for leadership, youth empowerment, and social entrepreneurship with meeting people from around the world in her roles with Powerful Youth! She is now based in the Netherlands.
