John Apelu Crouch
Talofa lava, my name is John Apelu Crouch, and I joined Le Va in August of 2022 as a Project Coordinator for our Atu-Mai team. I am Samoa-born and raised in the village of Tufulele.
I joined Le Va with the purpose to use its evidence-based resources to change the narrative for our Pasifika community. My passion to serve Pasifika communities derives from my family, and church upbringing. I am dedicated to our youth as I strongly believe this is the stage of life where we can nurture and bring out the full potential of our youth.
One of my strengths is the creative arts which I utilise as a tool to heal and restore wellbeing. I appreciate the safe environment Le Va provides for our people and I look forward to the many adventures with our amazing team.
