#MEETTHETEAMMONDAY

It’s #MeetTheTeamMonday. We want you to get to know the Threshold team. We asked Lindsay some fun questions and here is how they responded. Please feel free to let us know your answers to these questions – as we would love to get to know you too!

⭐️ Do you lean more towards being an introvert or an extrovert? I feel like I exist somewhere amidst the middle of this spectrum. ‘Ambivert’ sits well with me – I definitely draw from varied energy sources at different times in my life.

⭐️If you were a crayon, what colour would you be? I don’t even know how to begin to choose. All colours are important and I will not discriminate. But also, green. Green is the best colour. Seaweed green.

Our Response to Coronavirus

As you’re likely aware, there are significant concerns over the spread of Coronavirus. After careful consideration, and by the recommendation of local public health officials, we have decided to postpone our 30th Anniversary Gala. This decision is being made with the best interests in mind of our guests, staff, and the youth we serve. As an organization caring for a vulnerable population, we see it as our responsibility to make a prudent decision that will help protect the health of others who may be vulnerable. This is an important milestone in Threshold’s history, and we’re happy to confirm that our 30th Anniversary will be held at a yet to be determined date in the future. Thank you so much for all your support and we’re looking forward to continuing to highlight this milestone over our socials.

We have also taken steps to ensure the health and safety of our staff and the youth we serve. Health and wellness means a lot to us here at Threshold and we will always advocate for self care. ❤️

#MEETTHETEAMMONDAY

Happy Monday! We want you to get to know our team. For #MeetTheTeamMonday we asked our Executive Director Colin some questions to get to know him.

⭐️Do you lean more towards being an introvert or an extrovert?
My Myers-Briggs tells me I’m an extrovert but it’s marginal. I tend to be in the middle of this spectrum and while I very much enjoy relationships, community, and being engaged with people, I also need to time to myself to recharge, reflect and refocus.

⭐️If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
I would be a hybrid of black and gold. Those are the colours of my favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It’s #MeetTheTeamMonday! We asked Sarah some questions to get to know her.
⭐️
Do you lean more towards being an introvert or an extrovert? I am very much a social introvert. I love being around people and I spend lots of time being social but I do find it draining and if I don’t give myself some solid solo time I LOSE MY MIND!!
⭐️
If you were a crayon, what colour would you be? Metallic Gold- obvi!
⭐️
What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee? Meghan Markle
⭐️
Where do you feel the most grounded, near the ocean or in the mountains? That is a hard one—- I think I love the ocean more but the mountains make me feel more grounded. The ocean makes me feel wild and free which I love, but it can be intense and not so grounding sometimes!! Lakes on the other hand are my happy place where I am most grounded for sure.
⭐️
If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be? This is so hard! I am going to go with lion because they are very community oriented, they like to spend most of their time hanging out, spending quality time, lazing around, but when they need to be they are so strong, have great endurance and are fierce. lol
⭐️
What 3 words describe you best? Chill, open, curious
⭐️
Do you prefer coffee or tea? Coffee, coffee, coffee

Now until March 28th, 2020 we will be sharing pieces of our history, updating you on our current program, and telling you more about our vision for the future which is a community where all youth thrive.
