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.

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 favorite quotes: The only difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them.
Rachel Del Rosario (Supervisor): Rachel is a recent graduate of St. Joseph’s College School where she was the Chair for the Leadership Club and was part of several initiatives. She was also part of the student-led and board-wide initiative, Catholic Student Leadership Impact Team (CSLIT) where she served as an Executive Member for 2 years. She will be attending University of Toronto to pursue Life Sciences. This will be her second year in the FOY program, and first year as the Lead Media Team Member. One of Rachel’s quotes, in which she learned from her mentor (Michael Consul): What you put into it, is what you get out of it.
