Focus on Youth provides many jobs to high school students as Camp Counsellors, Media Team and Administrator. Although there is one lesser known but highly valued position, Custodial. Out of the hundreds of students hired, a select few are chosen to be custodians, like Kyle Sih.
Here is Kyle, hard at work:
Kyle is placed at St. Maria Goretti where one of the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club summer camp also takes place. He devotes his time to ensuring that the classrooms and camps are clean. He helps prepare the school for next year, making sure desks are spotless, and garbage free. He also cleans the walls, the bathrooms, and ensures that the floors spotless and waxed.
Everyday Kyle comes in bright and early at 7:30am and ends his day 3:30pm, and begins his daily routine. Along side his coworkers, they select a classroom, and start with the furniture. They ensure that all desks are empty and clean, and take them out so they can begin cleaning the floors and the walls. Once they complete a few rooms, they move on to cleaning the bathrooms, ensuring that all toilets, urinals, sinks, walls, floors, and ceiling are clean. Without the hard work of Kyle and his coworkers, the school wouldn’t be clean inside and out.
