Congratulations to Robarts trainee Ornela Kljakic on receiving the Ontario Medal for Young Volunteers.

Kljakic, who is completing her PhD with the Prado Lab, was recognized for her advocacy of education and literacy programs. She is a long-time volunteer with Frontier College, and has spent more than five years as a volunteer tutor with at-risk students and mentored new volunteers. She also supports literacy programs for young readers with the London Boys and Girls Club.

The Ontario Medal for Young Volunteers is the highest honour young Ontarians can receive for volunteer service.
