Niels graduated from the Karel de Grote University College in Belgium with a Bachelor of Remedial Education. He worked with children and youth with autism and hearing difficulties and worked as a residential counsellor for youth at risk. The TeenWork youth employment program introduced Niels to the field of career counselling. His experience working with children and adolescents from different backgrounds has made him adept at providing creative and personalized solutions for youth. He is excited to bring his expertise and can-do attitude to CanWork, a newly established collaboration between CanAssist and the Co-operative Education and Career Services at the University of Victoria. Niels is thrilled to be a part of a pilot program recognizing the unique strengths each individual can bring to the field and beyond.
