Manager of Cities, Communities Building Youth Futures
Remote Office: Toronto, ON
Trisha is excited to support communities in creating opportunities as well as improving education and employment outcomes with and for young people across Canada. In her role, she facilitates ongoing coaching, organizes knowledge exchange, and co-develops resources on community learnings and stories.
She brings knowledge and experience from international and community development, social policy, food security, and most recently, financial empowerment. At Prosper Canada, she developed programs with community leaders to improve access to government benefits using online technology, free income tax-filing, financial literacy, and financial coaching. She also co-founded lifTOvers, a grassroots non-profit that brings good, consumable food to social service agencies in Toronto.
Her passion for poverty elimination stems from a childhood of witnessing enormous disparities while living in Canada, the United States, and Bangladesh. She holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts in International Development with a Minor in Islamic Studies from McGill University as well as a Master of Science in Comparative Social Policy from the University of Oxford.
Trisha is an award-winning slam poet and is endlessly curious about cultures, spirituality, personal growth models, experimenting in the kitchen, and seeking non-life threatening adventures - mostly related to food.
