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.

Julienne Candelaria (Supervisor): Julienne Candelaria is a recent graduate of Francis Libermann CHS. She’s a very active member in her school and community. Aside from running circles on the track, getting buckets on the court or getting scoobers using the Juflick of the wrist, she plays an active leadership role in various clubs and initiatives. From Student Council Secretary to CSLIT’s Director of Administrative Affairs, she continues to take note of what she needs to improve on. Julienne’s passion for helping others drives her to volunteer around the community from serving food at the Good Shepherd Ministries to building homes overseas in the Philippines. If she’s not at school or the CEC, she’s training to improve her physical fitness at the gym, or training to improve her mental wellness at home watching Netflix while drinking bubble tea. She carries these experiences with her onto her next journey as she pursues Education in post secondary in hopes to inspire students to be the best version of themselves. Her favourite quote is: “Live simply so that others may simply live.”
