Rebecca Klaassen

Toronto RISE Project Coordinator

Rebecca holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of Ottawa in International Development and Globalization, where she focused on community engagement and was an active student organizer. After working for various non-profits and community organizations in Ottawa, she spent a year directing an experiential education program for youth in East Africa and the South Pacific. Now based in Toronto to coordinate the RISE program, Rebecca is passionate about finding ways to empower and engage youth in community change.

“I love that Apathy is Boring stays committed to its grassroots approach and youth-led leadership. From first being involved as a volunteer, to now working with A is B, I am continually inspired by this passionate team of young people who are dedicated to giving all youth a voice in Canada.”
