Marnie Goldenberg
Vice President, Programs

Marnie Goldenberg brings over 20 years of not-for-profit experience to her role at Family Services. Previously, Marnie held senior roles in human resources, organizational development, and program management, and served as an interim executive director.

As a consultant, Marnie supported many organizations in the areas of governance, program development and evaluation. Marnie’s early professional efforts were focused on vulnerable youth—working in outdoor education, as a legal advocate for young people within the criminal justice system and as an educator at Planned Parenthood in Toronto.

Marnie is focused on developing and sustaining a strong team that builds trust and resiliency among at-risk youth and addresses systemic barriers with partners, funders and the community.

Marnie currently serves as a board member of Social Venture Partners Vancouver, which uses a venture philanthropy model to effect significant, long-term positive social change to ensure more children and youth reach their full potential.
