Doug Frenette

Doug has worked for over 25 years in a mixed blend of private sector and charitable enterprises. His focus is on enterprising non-profits. For the past 10 years he has been the lead person with Youth Works Society, a federally registered charity. Youth Works has managed youth stay-in-school programs, private sector partnered employment programs, and self-supporting youth businesses.

Youth Works, under Doug's guidance, has also developed over the past 7 years educational products that have been distributed in both Canada and the United States. These products include print, video, cd, and internet applications. You may have seen them in the marketplace under the tradenames of Heart Beats, CareerQuest and Building Bridges. Their most recent co-production was with Nanaimo Youth Services Association in British Columbia. The website for that production can be seen at http://www.nysa.bc.ca/wa.
