Child and Youth Worker (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 3 February 2018
I had days where I was miserable. But then there were days where we actually saw students progress. The program itself needed its own evaluation. No wonder the version program is non existent anymore. Staff were fun.

VOLUNTEER & PREXPERIENCE (Former Employee) – 1200 markham rd ave east – 5 August 2015
On a regular day I would go in and sign in then join a group of other members to brainstorm some idea's of what we can do to help out in the community. almost every time I went In I learned something new like how to make the best out of an situation, but for the most part the work that was given more times wasn't hard their were a lot of easy task. The hardest part of the job would probably be coming up with idea's on how to make our community a better place but with more than one individual dishing out idea's on that topic it made things a lot easier and for the most enjoyable part of the job I'd have to say lunch time when we all take a brake from everything and talk about things going on in our personal life such as school and other recent events that we might have attended.
Youth Facilitator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 May 2015
This was a fun job. I helped at risk youth. I created presentations it was fun.I learned that not all kids are the same when it comes to understanding why there are a certain way because they come from all types of home settings that effect the way they are. The managers were sometimes invasive.They would try into my private life but i wasn't harmful in anyway. My co workers were awesome. The hardest part of the job was public speaking because i was scared too speak in public at the time. The most enjoyable part was reaching a kid and having them understand that gang violence and violence in a whole is not the answer to anything it just begets more violence.
A typical day at work would have to a meeting to construct a plan to engage the youth to do positive activities, what i learned from working as a youth assistant is that many people are concerned about the well being of their child but if the child is not properly groomed to receive information they will find themselves looking to other people than their parents. my co-workers where absolutely the the best they would push me to be the best at work, the hardest part of the job was to maintain my cool when it comes to being in a work place filled with people who didn't understand what the mentality of a youth is. The most enjoyable part of the job was being my self and interacting with the youth
Child and Youth Worker- Relief (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 July 2012
Working at East Metro has been one of the greatest experiences in my child and youth worker career thus far. The people I work with are friendly, helpful, very skilled in their field, and extremely welcoming. I have learned a lot so far and am looking forward to learning more from this wonderful agency. I think so far the hardest part of this job is that I am only a relief staff, so I do not get to work on a regular basis with this agency. My most enjoyable part of the job is the staff I work with and the youth I come into contact with in the classroom; they make it so enjoyable to go to work.
Excellent Youth services provided by caring employees
