Youth Challenge International (YCI) and the Ontario Council for International Council (OCIC) have joined forces to collaborate and host a special Development Drinks event to celebrate International Volunteer Day on Thursday December 5th from 6pm-8pm.
In preparation for the event, YCI will be featuring five of our alumni who will be speaking about their career development and what they have been doing since their volunteer project with YCI. Over the next few days, we will be sharing bios of each of the five speakers.
Billy Anderson – Group Leader, Costa Rica (2003) and Vanuatu (2008)
Billy helps people step out of their comfort zone in order to make a difference with their life. Years ago he had the guts to stop doing what the world told him he should do. Instead, he figured out what he wanted to do and how he wanted to make a difference in the world.
Billy lives a full life every single day. He’s jumped out of an airplane exactly 101 times, traveled to over 30 countries, trekked in the Himalayas, Run with the Bulls in Spain, and swam with sharks in Thailand. He’s been a sugar-cane farmer, an Outward Bound instructor, an advertising manager and a non-profit executive.
Billy is the founder of made you think COACHING (http://madeyouthink.ca), an ICF Certificated Coach, Outward Bound Instructor, Coach and Consultant with ABAMI Experiential learning solutions, a Leadership Coach with Hazell & Associates/Career Partners International, and a writer for the The Globe and Mail.
