We are a tight-knit group at Students Offering Support. With 4 members out of head office, we are also complemented by a team of interns ranging from IT, Finance, Admin Ops and Events. We take pride in supporting the model and by providing support to our SOS chapters, we strive to deliver access to education for those who need it most!
Jamie is the Executive Director of Students Offering Support, meaning he helps plan for the future of the organization while making sure the bills get paid! He has 10 years experience in the social impact sector, working across government, education, and running his own small businesses. He studied International Development as well as Entrepreneurship at Dalhousie University. Other than SOS, he has a passion for playing music, basketball, and trying to learn something new everyday! (And as you will learn in his intro video he has very flat feet)
Director of Outreach Trips
Laura believes in the transformative power of travel, cross cultural encounters, and volunteering. At SOS, she is responsible for supporting our international partners in Central and South America and preparing the SOS volunteers from Canada that come to meet them every summer. She ensures that the projects SOS supports ultimately bring a higher quality education to our partnering communities. Laura fiercely believes that very individual has the power to make a real impact at home or abroad, but that the best part about SOS is that you can do both.
Krista is wildly passionate about social initiatives and issue-based awareness. She loves her job because everyday she is inspired by her unbelievable student leaders across Canada!

Krista is focused on building a national SOS family, supporting student leadership development, and promoting our 360° model of Raising Marks, Raising Money, Raising Roofs!
