Free the Children: Volunteered with my school to sell calendars
Calendar Salesperson (Former Employee), Victoria, BCJuly 11, 2013
This was simply volunteer work in which, I approached teachers and parents in order to sell calenders. When sold, the money would go the free the children organization. My co-workers were cooperative and we all designed the calendars with equal contribution. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing we were helping people and the hardest part was – more... finding a place to print the calendars. – less

Productive and fun place to work at
Youth & Educational Resources Intern (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 26, 2013
Pros: free breakfasts, autonomy, great boss
Cons: often physically challenging; eg: heavy boxes were required to be moved around
On any given work day one could see me doing chiefly 3 things: 1) coordinating the assembly & mailing of sourcing material to S. Asia, Europe & across N. America 2) Organizing & instructing volunteers on how to assemble sourcing material 3) Data entry and administrative work to support youth engagement. This was my first full-time administrative support – more... role and the most important things that I learned were to maintain office supplies and equipment and to monitor inventory. The biggest challenge I faced in this role was coordinating and scheduling volunteers. These were usually large teams of up to 20 people and often children as young as 7 and adults above 40 years would be working in the same group. Instructing in a way that everybody could follow, was a big achievement. And I was able to get the job done by communicating clearly and precisely- often in writing. My co-workers were also of great help, since they would offer assistance whenever I asked of them. Having such great coworkers was definitely the most enjoyable part of the job. – less

Pros: the job itself is fun, and free lunches were provided
I was a dancer for Free the Children and Me to We. I learned a choreography, presented it to the audience, livened, and cheered the crowd . The dance was performed as a group but focus and practice was needed by each individual. Me to We had such a lively atmosphere and the co-workers were very enthusiastic and friendly.
