Monthly Highlight Alert! Tony Posthumus is the Executive Director of Northumberland Youth Unlimited and the Team Chaplain of the Cobourg Cougars Jr. A Hockey Club (2017 National Champs!). When not working with youth or cheering at a Cougars game (Go Cougars Go!), he loves hanging out with his wife Theresa and their four sons (Caleb, Noah, Ben, Sam), playing guitar, camping, watching movies, or burning stuff in their fire pit. Youth Unlimited sees the hope and potential in every young person. Tony’s experiences being bullied as a child, and his previous career in youth justice, have influenced his passion - helping youth know that they matter and are loved! He wants EVERY young person to experience hope for their today AND their tomorrow. You may feel like a nobody, but you are always a somebody! One of Tony's favourite Bible verses is Joshua 1:9 - "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." We may feel alone (especially in this pandemic), but God is always with us!#hopeandpotential #everyyouthmatters #monthlyhighlight ...
