The Focus on Youth program not only provides youth across the Toronto Catholic District School board over 300 camp counselor jobs but also several opportunities for custodial positions. This group of individuals are hired to assist with the custodial duties in several high school across the board and lessen the work load of caretakers during summer as they prepare for the coming school year.
Joshua Reid, a student of Msgr Percy Johnson, is one such Focus on Youth worker who was given the opportunity to work as a supporting custodian at James Cardinal McGuigan. His daily routine at work consists of; moping the floors, sweeping, buffering and assisting the school’s custodians with various tasks.
During his interview with us, he mentioned, “my job has given me a new sense of responsibility. I now know how to be punctual and also pay close attention to details. It’s essential in this job”.
Good luck to Joshua in his future endeavours!
