Shannon Prevett, I.Lead Youth Engagement Manager

Born and raised in Auckland, Shannon joins the YES Team after returning home from working in Australia within the youth health and disability sector.

After originally training as a nurse, Shannon found that her true passion lay within working alongside youth to break down barriers and promote the youth voice. This lead to the completion of a degree in human services with a focus on young people, and eventually work with young people in connecting them with health services, running youth advocacy events and operating youth centres.

Shannon is excited to be working at YES alongside the I.Lead Team and promoting youth voices.
