We have some exciting news for you: World-Changing Kids has a new team member!
I am so happy to announce that Amy Wellings is joining World-Changing Kids (WCK) as our new Director of Leadership and Club Development. Amy brings her 12+ years in human resources and leadership development experience from the corporate world to WCK. Her industry experience spans hi-tech, utilities and aviation where she spent her time designing and delivering development programs and curriculum to prepare emerging and new leaders for their new roles.
Her desire to teach her daughter the value of kindness and giving back to the community led to her purchasing our book, “Plant a Garden of Kindness, A Child’s Guide to Filling a Year with Weekly Acts of Kindness”, and then creating a local volunteer led kindness club in her neighbourhood – Barrhaven Kids Spreading Kindness. The club has been bringing children together with their families to give back through volunteering and acts of kindness. The experience of leading this inspirational group of young children has driven her to connect with WCK and blend her passions for leadership development and kindness. Her vision is to help WCK expand its mission through a network of clubs and programs for children where they can discover their potential to bring positive change to their communities and to the world.
