Norma Trivino

Norma Trivino

For the past 22 years Norma has served as a dedicated volunteer at work, in her church, and in her community.

 At work, she has volunteered countless hours for the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign. Throughout 14 years, she wore diverse hats, including Chair, Co-Chair, Committee Member, Special Events Coordinator and Ambassador Coordinator.

At church, her passion is her volunteer work for the Homeless Outreach Program. On a quarterly basis, Norma and other volunteers from In The Flame of The Holy Spirit Church offer sandwiches to help feed the displaced people of Toronto. Along with food, they bring their message of hope to those feeling lost and forgotten. Norma remembers when one individual was so inspired by their message he sought help, got a job, an apartment and began to take part in society again.  

 



 

In her community, she facilitated a self-esteem workshop for Latina girls at a day camp run by MUJER. This multi-faceted summer camp program was offered to disadvantaged Latina girls ages 13-21. It had three main components: Leadership, Health, and Creative Art Expression workshops, which addressed topics including self-esteem, bullying, body image and healthy relationships.

Norma also mentored Jeneene Guerrero, Miss Canada Charity 2013-2014. This volunteer work included focusing on and developing Jeneene`s charitable work plus providing both professional and personal support.

For all her hard work, Norma received an Outstanding Volunteer Achievement Certificate from The Honourable Costas Menegakis, Member of Parliament.
