Bev Olfert, Executive Director
Bev Olfert has been involved with the AYC for many years. She started at the AYC as a volunteer, later she worked as a program coordinator and in 2003 she was hired as the Executive Director. Before coming to the AYC, Bev worked in various programs serving children, youth and families at Abbotsford Community Services. These days Bev spends most of her time writing emails, going to meetings and generally looking after the day to day functioning of the AYC.
Bev is always looking for suggestions about programs and services that could be useful in the community. Come on in and have a chat . . . bring coffee – she likes that ;)

Christy Friess, Supervisor of Recreation
Christy Friess feels like she is one of the lucky ones who knows she is meant to do exactly what she is doing! As the Supervisor of Recreation she is able to connect with youth and help them better their lives through AYC programs. She also gets to use her experience and share her knowledge when helping to develop staff members into successful youth workers.
