Veronika Ilich

As Next Gen Men’s Community Manager, Veronika oversees volunteer engagement and appreciation, as well as donor stewardship. Together with our amazing volunteers, she works to plan and facilitate NGM Circle events every month, and connects us with community partners and stakeholders. She also provides project support for anything that comes our way and leverages social media to spread the word!

Veronika has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, where she became firmly invested in intersectional feminist theory. She is passionate about social justice, and in particular, gender-based violence prevention and eliminating poverty. She has worked with marginalized youth in Edmonton in relationship-based roles involving mentorship, advocacy, and education since 2013. She has also been involved in grassroots work with Men Edmonton to engage men in gender-based violence prevention since 2015.

An avid volunteer since her youth, Veronika believes in giving time to social causes, but when not working or volunteering, you can find her curled up with her dog and a good book, with friends, family, and good food, or playing the Legend of Zelda for the zillionth time.
