About Karine Chalifour

Karine is a graduate of Université du Québec à Montréal in Social Work and Psychology. After working in a hospital setting for years, she had the opportunity to co-facilitate a young adult support group. It became clear that this is what she wanted to do. In 2007, she started volunteering for YACC as a facilitator at Retreats and Conferences before moving to St. John’s and becoming a full-time employee. She is now the program director and is in charge of planning and delivering events and she loves every minute of it!


Born and Raised in Montreal, QC, but my heart now belongs to St. John’s, NL.

Team member since

What are your words of wisdom/favourite quote?

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” – Einstein

What were you like as a kid?

Apparently, my mom was always looking for me and would usually find me chatting at one of our neighbours’. I guess you could say I was independent and social;-)

Which superpower would you like to have?

Having the superpower to heal mental and physical illness would be pretty cool.
