Amber Townsend
Indigenous & Youth Program Coordinator - She/Her

Amber is passionate about community organizing and coordinating programs that focus on healing and self sovereignty for our Inuit, Métis, and First Nations communities, as well as alternative ways of learning for adults and youth. She is of Scottish and Mi’kmaw descent. She feels dedicated and inspired to work at the Tatamagouche Centre, because of the many ways the Centre strives to be inclusive and supportive of all people and communities across Turtle Island, and beyond. The Tatamagouche Centre embraces diversity and encourages us all to bloom, regardless of our backgrounds. 

Amber hopes to pay it forward through her work with the Centre, as her own educational successes have not been linear. She feels the Tatamagouche Centre embraces those squiggly lines and says, “without spaces like this, I never would have made it this far. The Tata Centre is an opportunity for me to help support and serve the community.”
