Julius Naredo [Bachelor of Religious Studies 2009] is living out his passion for urban communities as a site supervisor in the Jane and Finch area with UrbanPromise Toronto, an organization that uses holistic practices to bring hope to children, youth and families living in Toronto Community Housing. Julius has a variety of roles in his job – he leads children’s and junior high camps, hosts after school programs, provides tutoring assistance, coordinates UrbanPromise volunteers and provides practical assistance to local single parents.
