Focus On Youth offers various summer positions and one of them is custodial. Out of 300 students that were chosen to become part of program, a few lucky ones became custodians. Prasath Cristy is a custodian at Our Lady of Fatima. He devotes his summer to ensure the cleanliness of the school in preparation for the upcoming school year.
In the morning, Prasath starts the day sweeping and mopping classrooms with his mentor West. He is a quick learner and ensures that he finishes all the work given to him. As a custodian, he plays a huge role on making the classroom clean for the kids in the coming year. He sees this as a huge responsibility, so he ensures everything is done promptly and properly.
In the afternoon, Prasath spends his time cleaning washrooms and the second floor of the school. He changes the paper towels in the dispenser, wipes windows and prepares all the materials needed to keep the classroom clean throughout the school year. After camp, he also cleans up the mess the kids have made.
When all of his work is done, Prasath spends his time with the kids. He loves their energy as they become his motivation. Prasath creates great relationships with his coworkers and appreciates what custodians do for the school. He loves his job because it teaches him responsibility, organization skills and team work.
