heavy lifting
Kitchen helper (Former Employee) –  Duncan, BC27 March 2017
was a long day lots of lifting and sweating. I learned that not all jobs are easy. I worked hard everyday. and got it all done as fast as I could. I enjoyed the elders we served. I think the hardest part was lifting heavy things on my own.
Pros
elders
Cons
not to sure. it was a very good job.

Youth work
First Nations Youth Worker (Former Employee) –  Duncan, BC15 July 2014
I was one of those people who would think, "why doesn't anybody do something about this?" Working with youth was at times challenging, confusing but very rewarding. We can learn about social problems and behaviour issues. Textbooks provide good information of concepts, definitions and terms but the hardest part was communicating because this involves a trust "thing" and it seems for anybody getting into a state of trust is difficult but can be valuable. Some youth it seems you have to slow way down to their current level while some other youth seem to need to go a million miles an hour with their hair on fire, so at times it seems hard to adjust levels to make contact. I hope the activities and projects I participated with the youth made a difference.
Pros
program accessibility
Cons
program money or budget limits
