Today, we're thrilled to introduce you to an exceptional individual who embodies the spirit of compassion, dedication, and community engagement that defines Youth Unlimited Edmonton (YUE). Meet Ian Admiraal, a valued member of our Board of Directors whose journey and commitment to making a difference is truly inspiring.
With a background spanning over a decade in small business management, Ian brings a wealth of experience and insight to our team. His passion for community betterment led him to cross paths with Youth Unlimited in the mid-2010s, where he began participating in various events and fundraisers. This initial involvement naturally evolved into Ian joining our board in 2021, contributing his expertise and heart to our cause.
Ian's devotion to uplifting the community doesn't stop at Youth Unlimited. He and his wife Shayna are active members of City Life Church in Leduc, where they passionately serve in the worship, creative arts, and media departments, and Shayna takes a lead in the youth and children's ministry. This dynamic duo truly understands the power of faith and action in transforming lives.
"I have a deep belief in the mission and vision of Youth Unlimited," Ian affirms. "Witnessing the profound impact YUE has on the community, I am reminded of my own journey and the significance of meaningful adult relationships during my youth. These relationships played a pivotal role in shaping who I am today."
Ian and Shayna Admiraal stand as beacons of hope in a world often overshadowed by challenges and suffering. They recognize the prevailing need and despair yet firmly believe in the promise of a brighter future. Ian's presence on the YUE board enables him to extend his hand to the youth of Edmonton, offering support, guidance, and a strong adult presence during their formative years.
Ian's story reminds us all that every effort, every contribution, and every connection we make can ripple through time, leaving a lasting impact. As Ian himself asserts, "YUE allows me to serve the youth in our community and support the hard work of our volunteers and staff."
