Media Team

This group of centrally staffed Focus on Youth Leaders was assembled to give you the highlights of all Focus on Youth programs, from Scarborough to Etobicoke. They also promote Focus on Youth to future leaders looking for employment and provide the chance to reach out to fellow youth in Toronto neighbourhoods.

The Management:

Our fearless leader

Michael Consul (Manager): Mike is a jack of all trades, and a real tech nerd.  He has served as a Student Leadership Coordinator for the TCDSB, in addition to being a certified 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Facilitator. A Mcgill University Graduate, Mike has also been the recipient of the Teachers that Make a Difference Award, the Provincial Exemplary Practice Award, and the TCDSB Best Practice award. He was recently awarded Teacher of the Year for 2016. On top of everything else, he’s also coached baseball, softball, volleyball, and badminton at the high school level. One of Mike’s favourite quotes: The only difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them.

Rachel Banaag (Supervisor): As Rachel Banaag enters her final year at Blessed Mother Teresa CSS, she has become quite the busy bee. You can find her juggling her freIMG_5095e time as she plays sports, is alongside Student Government as school President or even at the school board as CSLIT’s Public Relations Coordinator. She loves school so much that she aspires to never leave the learning environment with hopes to become a teacher in the near future, specifically a high school teacher. Standing only at 5’2, her ecstatic and positive outlook on life makes up for such a small person, especially with her loud voice, you can’t miss her.  Rachel strongly believes that yes, you CAN do all things through Christ who gives you strength. (Phil.4:13)
