The Toronto Catholic District School Board Administrative  department was created to give students the experience of working in an office environment. Located at 80 Sheppard Avenue East. The TCDSB is a friendly work environment.

The Administration program runs for six weeks beginning at the end of June from 9am to 5pm on Mondays to Fridays. The Focus on Youth administrators plan and co-ordinate all events that prepare students to perform their jobs to the best of their ability. They are also responsible for making sure all the students are paid. All in all, they make sure that they deliver quality programming for their students and so that the students will find their summer to be a meaningful and valuable experience.

This department was created to ensure that all the paperwork for all the Focus on Youth students was taken care of. Also, it was created to make sure that all the training sessions are planned out, and all the students are fully informed about their work environment. This program started when the Focus on Youth program started back in 2007.

A typical day working in the Administration Department as a Focus on Youth student is quite fun. Khris and Aaliyah start at 9am. From there, they do what jobs their supervisors have for them. They are also in charge of creating newsletters for certain camps. At the end of the week, they also put post up time sheets for that week so that the rest of the Focus on Youth students can put in their hours. Khris and Aaliyah primarily work under Andre Fullerton and Janelle Curtis. Their day ends at 5pm.
