Donovan Jang, Knowledge Exchange Assistant (He/Him)

Donovan Jang joined APPLE Schools in 2019 as a practicum student from the University of Alberta, where he completed his practicum and graduated with a bachelor of kinesiology. With a major in physical activity and health, Donovan has long been drawn to realizing his passion for health promotion with an organization that can affect change on a broad population level. He worked within the University of Alberta's Campus & Community Recreation, and returned to APPLE Schools in 2021 as a knowledge exchange assistant. This passion arises from the integral role that healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and sport have played in shaping his life, and his desire to give back by empowering others to have similar opportunities. He is excited to continue supporting the project as APPLE Schools continues to expand.

In his free time, Donovan enjoys playing hockey and rock climbing, both indoors and outdoors. He can often be found in the mountains on weekends when the weather permits, the indoor climbing gyms if it doesn't, or the arena when the winter hits!
