Provincial Youth Forum

Meet the Provincial Youth Council




Hello! I am Emily Kenny from Fermeuse and I am the current Youth Chair on the Provincial Youth Forum. I have been a member of guiding for 13 years and I love everything about it. My favourite guiding activity is
making s'mores over a campfire. I am so excited to be on the Newfoundland and Labrador Youth Forum and help you girls and guides have the best guiding year.



Hello! My name is Rebecca Vicars, and I am from Torbay, NL. 
My role on the Provincial Youth Forum is Deputy Youth chair. I am currently a third year Ranger and have been involved in girl guides for ten years. I have also helped out as a Jr. Brownie Leader for three years with the 1st Torbay Brownies. My favourite guiding activity is making traders for camp! 
I am very proud to be on the Newfoundland and Labrador Youth Forum and I am very excited to see all the great opportunities this year will bring!

               Hello! I’m Sarah, the Activities and Service Project Coordinator for the Youth Forum 2019-2020. I’ve been in Guiding for 11 years now, and I’m very involved in Guiding as a whole. I’m a 2nd year Ranger with the 1st Chamberlains Rangers, and I junior lead with the 1st Paradise Sparks and often will help with other units in the Paradise District when help is needed! I’m very glad I have the opportunity to be on the Youth Forum this Guiding year, and I hope many other girls will get this amazing opportunity as well.



My name is Kayla Penney. I am the Bridging Member/Link Liason on this year's Provincial Youth Forum. This is my eleventh year involved with Guiding and my fourth year as a Youth Leader. I recently moved to Paradise from Bonavista to attend Memorial University and I now help lead the 1st Paradise Sparks. My favourite part about Guiding is going to provincial/interprovincial events, and some of my best memories come from attending them. I am so honoured to be able to help plan this year's Youth Gathering. I can't wait to try and make this year's event just as memorable an experience for everyone attending as it has been for me the last three years
