Mike Ryan - (Founder) - 2003 - Present
I Mike Ryan founded this organization in 2002, my story is one of recovery and change from a life of crime, violence, punishment and addiction. As CMO and Program Director of Clean Scene, I help youth deal with life changes, through facilitating the learning of effective thinking skills. I also hold the position of senior mentor for the Live Your Magic program which is designed to facilitate a transformation in the lives of youth aged 12-17.
Carol Kozlevcar - (Office Administrator) - 2015 - Present
I began volunteering for Clean Scene for seven months before being hired full-time. I began as a volunteer in 2015 and I have been enjoying my time here ever since. This, to me, is not a job…it is a calling. I strongly believe every person has value and has the potential for an amazing future. Usually, I am the first point of contact that most people have with our organization and make it as positive and welcoming as possible.
Jason Jackson - (Youth Mentor) - 2017 - Present
I began working with Clean Scene as a mentor for the Live Your Magic program after meeting Mike Ryan. Once hearing what Clean Scene does in the community I knew that it was an organization I wanted to be involved with. I have been a youth Mentor since October 2017 and am very excited for all the wonderful partnerships we can continue to build in 2018. Working very closely with local Schools, Youth Centres, Businesses and other community-based organizations is something that is very important to me.

I am excited to bring my experience as a teacher, facilitator and mentor to Clean Scene. As a teacher and private tutor, I have taught students from age five to sixty-five and continue to advocate for life-long learning. I have facilitated a wide range of personal development programs including my own P.E.A.K. (Positive Energy Action & Knowledge) Program to individuals incarcerated in the Edmonton Remand Center and to participants in a P.E.A.K. On-The-Street Program at the Stanley Milner Edmonton Public Library downtown. I am delighted to be part of a remarkable team dedicated to engaging, enlightening and empowering individuals to create the best version of themselves. I look forward to an exciting adventure!
