Youth Leader/Communications Lead in Etobicoke, ON

Fulfilling work and ability to grow
Overall I find this a productive and fulfilling place to work. Management seeks to cultivate an inclusive environment and encourages growth by making available a multitude of training opportunities free to staff. I am able to freely explore my visions which align with those of the organization; therefore, my work is satisfying as I get to make a difference in the general community. I believe that this organization could improve on the rate of pay issued to workers.

Children's Summer Program Lead Worker in Etobicoke, ON

One of the best place I worked for. Their staff and management were very welcoming and supportive with your professional development.
As a children's summer program worker, you have to plan programs for children ages 0-6 years old. Then you and your partner/s will have to drive to different parks to set up the activities that you planned. You'll be loading and unloading the toys from the van to the park. There, you'll meet children, parents and families that may address their concerns or ask about the services available in the community. You will be working with different professional such as dental hygienist, public nurse, librarian, etc. Few things I learned while working here are (but not limited to) the services available in the community, having confidence in communicating with families, and to collaborate with different professionals.

Management and leadership are toxic
I started working here excited to dive into community health care sector and instead ended up physically ill from dealing with the most toxic workplace culture I've ever experienced. The fact that gossip, infighting and corner cutting by upper management defined my time there is deeply unfortunate, as LAMP is in an area with very few services. I think this comes from a place of ignorance, not malice. The current executive director has proven that they lack the leadership skills to cultivate an inclusive and positive workplace. Directors would often break confidentiality of both clients and staff seemingly unintentionally - meetings with doors wide open and releasing personal health information to people without due process. Gossip was completely out of hand, with staff commonly pitted against each other. This scarcity mindset pioneered by directors has left many staff fearing for their jobs and trying to distract from their own poor performance by targeting others. Though sad, I also had a lot of compassion for people who were there for years as the workplace had clearly left an indelible mark on their mental health. I was left totally unsupported in my work. When I asked for clarity around expectations, submitted reports, asked for approval on workplans or sought any guidance, I was met with radio silence by the directors.This lack of care bubbled over into frustration that seeped into every department I interacted with while there. Many good workers were weeded out by high school level antics of those in charge. Others left because of oppression, in many forms, that was excused and defended by the director team. Despite doing meaningful work at LAMP, this workplace culture deeply affected me. When I left, I felt so powerless and defeated by those I had hoped would be my mentors. Barring a total overhaul of the powers that be, I would not advise working here. They try to attract young, inexperienced workers because this reputation is widely known, as I discovered too late. Avoid for your own mental health!

Great Place to Work
LAMP is a great place to work if you're someone is the goal is to give back. there's not a lot of financial benefits, but the reward of helping others in your community
