Jo Phillips

Inspiring Change

For Jo, it's all about kids. Hanging out with them, learning from them, helping them. Since 2015 she's been speaking with her partner Joe Whitbread in schools, listening to kids about how they use social media and the challenges they face. This led to the creation of the Jo(e) Youth Creative - an innovative space in Lacombe where kids come to play video games, make TikToks and learn YouTube. Jo is currently the director of the JYC, a full-time public speaker, advocate for kids and coach to parents who want collaborative solutions to their family social media challenges.

Jo loves to listen to the stories of kids and work with them to find solutions to their ideas, and their challenges. With a degree in Psychology focused on motivation and personality, and a minor in Sociology from the University of Calgary, she's able to connect the dots for parents and kids in a healthy, fun, way.
