Counsellor (Former Employee) – 180 Westmoreland Ave, Toronto ON M6H 3A2 – 18 November 2015
The connections I made with the children will last a life time, While it was a small location for the number of members it was fantastic in having a welcoming environment for the children to feel welcome and have fun

Volunteer Mentor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 February 2019
I would walk in once school ended and take the attendance right away to see how many kids we would be working with on that day, we would then distribute the snack for the day accordingly. Homework was what was done immediately after snack to make sure that the kids wouldn't fall behind on their school responsibilities. On average about 4-5 kids would need help on a daily basis, you would have to help while watching the other kids to make sure nothing bad is happening. After homework, the kids would either play in the gym or outside so I would need to supervise them and lead any games or activities being played. The average workload daily is very demanding but still fun and teaches very essential and beneficial work skills.
